The Council of Neighbors and Organizations (CONO) empowers neighborhoods in the Pikes Peak Region.
CONO strives to strengthen the public process and increase the capacity of public and private organizations to resolve community issues and empower residents to further shape their quality of life.
Collaboration among neighbors will allow for a healthy democracy ensuring broad participation and perspectives in our community. CONO connects people within and across neighborhoods to build community.
Neighborhoods are the building blocks of cities and counties, and are the basic units of democracy. For 41 years, CONO has preserved and protected hundreds of neighborhoods throughout El Paso & Teller Counties.
Through education and training, CONO strives to strengthen individuals and associations to advocate on their own behalf.
