Tioga Terrace is …

Tioga Terrace is a quiet, friendly residential community consisting of more than 750 families.

“The Terrace,” as it is known, has been home to families since the late 1950s, and remains one of the premier residential communities in the Broome-Tioga County area. Offering a wide variety of quality housing, the Terrace continues to expand and develop.

For its part, the Civic Association promotes information sharing, fellowship and cooperation among Terrace residents, helping to protect the interests of property owners. For over 50 years, it has played an integral role in enhancing the quality of life for Terrace residents.

We hope you find our Web site helpful in learning more about our Association and community. Thanks for visiting.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, September 13th, 2017 at 7:00 at Park Terrace Community United Methodist Church on Glann Rd. in the Terrace. Hope to see you there!

Safety Tips for Walking in Tioga Terrace

As nice weather finally comes to the Terrace, more walkers will be out in our neighborhood. Here are some safety tips.

1. Don’t walk alone at night or in areas that are unfamiliar.

2. Choose clothes that drivers can easily see. Light or bright colors, reflective material and flashing lights are best. Wear closed-toe, comfortable shoes that will not slip.

3. There are no sidewalks in the Terrace so always walk on the left, facing traffic.

4. Important things to carry with you are water, a driver’s license or ID, and a cell phone. Carry a flashlight or download the flashlight app to your smartphone.

5. Before stepping in front of a car make eye contact with the driver. Make sure they see you, plan on stopping and have time to stop.

6. Dress in layers. Your body warms up as you walk.

7. Pay attention ! Don’t be distracted by headphones or cell phones.

Even though you may have the right-of-way, walk as if drivers don’t know the rules. Accidents happen in just seconds.

DRIVERS – Be alert to children, dogs, and walkers on our streets. They are our families and friends !
