Neighborhood Cleanup & Community Improvement

Does your neighborhood need a clean up of debris, trash, weeds, litter? Do you need some assistance in organizing and funding a revitalization project? Write your neighborhood history, distribute flyers for an annual event, paint houses, plant trees and more!

CONO can help! CONO and the Regional Building Department will help support neighborhoods to organize and fund qualifying  projects. If you have a project that you'd like to explore with us, please contact Sara Poe at

For 40 years, CONO has preserved and protected hundreds of neighborhoods in El Paso & Teller County. Neighborhoods are the building blocks of cities and counties, and the basic unit of democracy.

Through education and training, CONO strives to strengthen the public process and increase the capacity of local government and public and private organizations to resolve community issues and empower residents to further shape their quality of life.

By joining governmental, business, and individual donors, you will increase our capacity to serve more neighborhoods, provide more training opportunities and, in particular, impact low- to- moderate income areas.

Building on our relationships throughout the business, nonprofit, government sectors and within neighborhoods, CONO’s support and resources create safer and healthier neighborhoods and empower leaders and change communities one neighborhood at a time.
