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 Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 at 7:00 at Park Terrace Community United Methodist Church on Glann Rd. in the Terrace. Hope to see you there!
Town of Owego Highway Department Supervisor, Mark Clark is having difficulty finding sufficient Summer Hires and some services may be delayed.
If you are 18 years of age, capable of physical labor, and have a current driver’s license, you can apply for a summer position by going to the Owego Town Hall on Rte 434 to get an application.
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 strep but please dispose of your bags properly. Thank you
The Tioga Terrace Membership Drive starts May 9 and runs until May 23. A volunteer resident will visit your home to ask for your donation of $15. As always, we will gladly accept any donation toward the many services provided by your Tioga Terrace Civic Association.
Funds are used to produce, print and mail the 4 Newsletters each year, the annual Halloween Parade & Party, Halloween & Christmas Lighting contests, and Santa visits. We also provide special events throughout the year like a Pot Luck dinner, Defensive Driving Courses, etc. We provide a yearly Scholarship to a Terrace graduating Senior.
Last year less than 70% of Tioga Terrace residents gave to the membership drive. Because of this, we were unable to change our Newsletter to all color. We truly appreciate your support of our civic association and our projects. Thank you
Nancy Sydlosky – TTCA President

The TTCA Board met the Apalachin Fire Commissioners Chairman, Brian Rieber and learned a great deal about the workings of our local Emergency Services Responders. We found that even though we are in the process of adding 4 new EMTs to our volunteer responders, we are still in desperate need of Ambulance Drivers. Drivers must be at least 18 years old, have a valid driver’s license, and have no convictions for arson. A physical and a background check will be required. Training is approximately 20 – 30 hours.
Weekly drills are held at Station 1 on Pennsylvania Av on Wednesdays at 7:00pm. Feel free to go and get a feel for what’s involved. Just show up and ask for any Chief . They can answer your questions.
If you are interested in volunteering for any of these positions, you can get information regarding the requirements from the Apalachin Fire Department website www.apalachinfd.com. There is a link to submit an online volunteer application.
