CPO Leadership Fun

Neighbors working together

CPOs are made up of neighbors working with neighbors to stay informed about local issues, to share ideas and concerns, and to participate in decision making processes whenever possible, with one goal in mind: to help improve the livability of the communities they serve. And they have lots of fun doing it! If you are interested in volunteering in your community, contact us!
