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.
Due to health safety concerns regarding Coronavirus exposure, the next TTCA meeting will be closed to the public until further notice.. If you have items you’d like to include in the agenda, please email or call any member of the board or respond on this website.
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.
The Parks Chairperson is responsible for monitoring the condition of our two parks, Tioga Blvd Park behind the fire station, and the Woodside Rd W park on the corner of Elmwood. The Chairperson will communicate needed maintenance or improvements to the TTCA Board and the Town of Owego Parks Dept.
A renewal project is presently underway in the Tioga Blvd Park and will require follow up with the Town.
If interested in this position, please contact Nancy Sydlosky, TTCA President at firstname.lastname@example.org or 607 258-0276.
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.
So far, without home visits by our volunteers, we have collected Membership Dues from about 30% of the Terrace residents. We had hoped to be able to visit those who didn’t donate from our online appeals but Covid has not allowed us to do that.
You can also use our Venmo account (as “Tioga Terrace”). Feel free to send your $15 membership dues via Venmo! Our pin is 1890. Please be sure to include your address so your TTCA Membership account is credited correctly.
We continue to accept regular donations too. You can mail or drop off your donation to:
4 Bowen Ln. Apalachin 13732
Please be sure to include your name and street address so we can be sure you are marked as paid.
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
