Ongoing Membership Drive

NOTE: TTCA is currently conducting a neighborhood membership drive. If someone comes to your door to collect membership dues, be sure to verify that he/she has either a TTCA badge or a membership packet. We are asking for $20 this year.

*** NOTICE ***
Due to issues with Venmo TTCA currently cannot accept payments this way at this time.

Here are 2 ways you can pay direct to Tioga Terrace Civic Association:

1.) The Tioga Terrace Civic Association bank is Visions right on Rt 434, next to Jeff Kies. Even if Visions is not your bank, you may use the dropbox at the drive through to deposit to our account. First, the envelope must say Tioga Terrace Civic Association. If it’s a check, make it out to Tioga Terrace Civic Association OR TTCA. The bank will process your payment the next day.

2.) If you use Online banking with your bank, add Tioga Terrace Civic Association to your payees. Use the address of 19 Oakwood Dr Apalachin (treasurers address). Use your street address as your account number. Your bank will process a check that will be sent to the Treasurer. You do
not write a check, use an envelope, or waste a stamp.

We will continue to accept regular donations too. You can mail or drop off your donation to:

Meredith Bocek
75 Glann Rd., Apalachin NY 13732

Please make your check out to TTCA. Also be sure to include your name and street address so we can be sure you are marked as paid.

Thanks for helping us to continue to make Tioga Terrace a great place to live!

Drivers: Please Slow Down

The speed limit in Tioga Terrace is 30 MPH. We have seen a great deal of speeding recently and complained to the Town of Owego. It is likely you will see more Sheriff’s Dept cars in the Terrace and they will ticket speeders. So please slow down and drive safely.

Let’s Keep It Clean

Please clean up after your dog. A few dog walkers in the Terrace have bagged their dog’s poop but left the bags in the street to be run over by cars. Bagging is a good first step but please dispose of your bags properly. Thank you

Lower Park Update

**** 02/20/2024 ***

Walking trail is now complete & ready for use. Discussions are currently underway for possible additional developments.

**** 07/31/2021 ***

The TTCA first brought the matter of renovation of the Tioga Blvd Park to Don Castellucci during his visit to our TTCA meeting on February 9 of 2016. He sent a review letter on February 24, 2016 . His note says,
“Playground/Park (behind Red Apple):
As I thought there is a boundary issue with an adjoining neighbor which is being worked out. Once this has been rectified our Parks Committee will be looking at uses for the park and a direction to be followed with budgetary priorities. At that time, TTCA will be invited to join the discussions, as the Town makes final determinations for its use. “

We have communicated by email, at our TTCA meetings, and at Town Meetings in 2018, 2019, and twice by email in 2020.
We have been assured that there was $20,000 in the 2019 budget and we asked to only get the front portion blacktopped before the end of June for summer use. At the end of September 2019, the tennis nets, basketball hoops, and portions of the fence were removed. This process damaged the blacktop to be not only unusable but also unsafe. No additional work has been done since September of 2019.
In 2020 – 2021, we’ve been told of an additional grant from the Mildred Faulkner Truman Foundation of Owego in the amount of $7300 and an unknown amount from the State of New York. In addition we were told a resident offered a large donation if we included a pickleball court. We agreed.
The TTCA had asked for additional funds to be added to the budget for 2020 and 2021 but we do not know if that happened.
Joe Dapolito, Jennifer Bastian, Kaci Doty & I met with Don Castellucci at the Town Hall on June 8th, 2021 to discuss the park. He agreed to discuss with the Town Board .

The next TTCA meeting will be held @7PM, June 11th at Park Terrace Church on Glann Rd.

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.

TTCA meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month, except July and August. Meetings are held at the Park Terrace Church on Glann Rd at 7:00 pm. Please join us.
Thank you for your support!
