Your Washington County Community Participation Organization (CPO) of Forest Grove has arrived! 

CPO 12F Volunteers

Are you looking to become engaged in your local community, but don't know where to start? Start with CPO 12F!

After 17 years, a number of community members have joined forces to bring back CPO 12F, a volunteer-led community-based group that focuses on the local issues that affect the people who live and work in the community of Forest Grove. The CPO offers a wide range of involvement opportunities for anyone who wants to help improve and shape their community for the future. Get involved! 

Monthly community meetings provide a place to meet your neighbors, voice concerns, present possible solutions and learn about opportunities to become engaged in the decision making processes about the issues that make a difference in your life.
