Community Portal One - ComPortOne - CPO was created with the idea that there was a growing need to provide an Internet information service for our Midwest community. Serving the area since 1994. You won't find a more complete business directory for northern Illinois / southern Wisconsin area businesses anywhere else on the Internet. A few keystrokes and mouse clicks will take you on your way to discovering what our area has to offer ~ businesses, entertainment, clubs and hobbies, places to eat, community events, schools, goverment, and more, including CPO's Internet Magazine, which features a new and updated front every 1st and 15th of the month.
