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, February 15th, 2017 at 7:00 at Park Terrace Community United Methodist Church on Glann Rd. in the Terrace. Hope to see you there!

Santa’s Visit in 2016!

VACANCY: TTCA SIGN COORDINATOR

We’re looking for someone to coordinate the occasional use of Civic Association signs in the Terrace. These are the familiar small signs you’ve seen on poles announcing leaf pick-ups, the Halloween parade, and other special notices and events. Ideally, this person would also be responsible for maintaining the traffic control signs used during the TTCA’s annual Terrace garage sale. A seasoned ‘veteran’ is available to explain the details and show you the ropes. If you think you might be interested in helping out with this “behind the scenes” but very important function, please contact Jim Sprague at 625-5476 (jsprague@stny.rr.com) Thanks!

On Street Parking Ban Still In Effect

On Street Parking Ban November 15 to March 15
The TTCA board has received many complaints about on street parking – especially at night during the winter months. The Town of Owego ordinance restricts on street parking from 2AM to 7AM starting November 15 through March 15. Vehicles on the street during these months pose a greater traffic hazard to pedestrians and other vehicles and deter snowplows from properly cleaning our streets. The Town of Owego has not frequently issued tickets for this offence in the past but as the practice increases, more tickets may be forthcoming.

TTCA Scholarship

TTCA Offers $500 Scholarship

For the 18th consecutive year, the TTCA will award one scholarship to a college-bound senior who has demonstrated regular service to his or her school and community. To be eligible, the student must be a graduating senior, a resident of Tioga Terrace, and accepted into a continuing education program.

Typically, the scholarship application period is announced in February by the Vestal High School Guidance Department, which also provides application forms (watch for announcements and/or postings). Students attending schools other than Vestal may obtain an application by calling Chuck Place, TTCA scholarship chairman, at 625-4597.
