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.
The monthly meetings of the Tioga Terrace Civic Association have been closed to the public since last spring due to Covid 19 safety concerns.
Beginning with our May 11, 2021 meeting, we will again encourage residents of the Terrace to join our meetings.
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
With school back in session, drivers are reminded to stop at any red light stop signals from stopped school buses. Passing a school bus with its red lights flashing is a serious safety issue and against the law.
TTCA thanks you in advance for doing your part to help ensure that our neighborhood children are safe.
We are sad to announce a vacancy for the position of Halloween Party Coordinator. As many of you have attended the annual TTCA Halloween party, you know it’s a very popular outing for the children in the Terrace. The Coordinator arranges games, snacks, crafts, and weather permitting a small parade. If you are interested in this position, please contact Nancy Sydlosky (email@example.com or 258-0276) or any TTCA Board member. Or join us at a meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of the month (except July & August) at the Park Terrace Church. We’d love to meet you.

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.
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

Town Supevisor, Don Castellucci attended our TTCA meeting in February and we discussed the 2020 plan for the Tioga Blvd Park. We impressed on Don how much we’d like to see the park at least minimally useable this summer. Meaning we’d like at least the blacktop and basket hoops completed. Don agreed to continue to work on our behalf to get that much work done this summer. Once the park is useable, we’d like to celebrate but no timeframe is yet available. Of course, we’ll keep you all informed.
**** 06/02/2019 ****
In my President’s Letter in the current Terrace Talk newsletter, I talked about the lack of work in the Tioga Blvd Park. As I said, we spoke with Don Castellucci a couple of times regarding great plans for the park. We knew funds were an issue but we were clear that we hoped to see progress before the summer was over. When that did not happen and school started with no work started, we were sorely disappointed.
But no sooner did I comment in the Presidents Letter but I heard from several Board members that there were workmen on site. Carolyn and I both drove down to see. The fence was removed and Carolyn was told the old blacktop will be removed and the exposed ground pressed down. New paving then will be done in the Spring.
That is what we know for now and as promised, we’ll keep you informed.
Nancy Sydlosky TTCA President
Carolyn Showalter Parks Chairperson
