The Village in the City
The Beverly Area Planning Association is one of Chicago’s most successful grassroots civic organizations. Since 1947, we have worked to preserve and improve the Beverly Hills/Morgan Park neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. BAPA’s motto is Love Where You Live. Our mission is to sustain and enhance our safe, culturally diverse community. We do that with proactive, effective programs that unify residents, institutions and businesses around the common cause of nurturing Chicago’s best neighborhood. BAPA’s events and communications foster the pride that is the hallmark of our busy and welcoming community.
BAPA is the go-to resource for information, referrals and action.
A 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, BAPA is supported by membership donations from residents and businesses, as well as grants and gifts. To learn more about how you can help our efforts, visit the Support BAPA page.
