Double the Run, Twice the Fun

BAPA is hosting TWO Ridge Runs in 2021: a virtual event that starts May 31 and a live run on Sept. 4!

Bringing Out the Best 
in Our Community.

The Beverly Area Planning Association (BAPA) invites you to learn more about why we love where we live. One of Chicago’s oldest grass roots community organizations, BAPA has been serving the people, businesses and organizations of Beverly/Morgan Park for nearly 75 years. With the help of our community partners, BAPA’s staff fosters a safe, friendly, diverse and family-oriented neighborhood that’s characterized by its fascinating history and outstanding architecture. Our close-knit community has top-notch schools, growing businesses, a thriving arts and culture scene, great home values and plentiful green spaces. Whether you’re a prospective resident, current neighbor or business owner looking for resources or referrals, BAPA can help.

BAPA Supports Butterfly Habitats

BAPA is working to help six community gardens become certified Monarch Waystations, in an effort to combat the dramatic global decline in the Monarch butterfly population.

Earth Day Student Art Contest

All Beverly/Morgan Park students in 1st–12th grades are invited to participate in an art contest to celebrate Earth Day and promote environmental awareness!

Save These BAPA Dates!

The BAPA team has been carefully planning a calendar of events around a gradual return to ‘normal’ life following the global pandemic. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!

Love Where You Live

Beverly Hills/Morgan Park is the gem of Chicago’s South Side. You can’t beat our beautiful, historic homes, rich recreational and arts resources, or the hospitality of our neighbors.

BAPA is supported by membership donations from Beverly area residents and businesses, as well as grants. Learn more about how you can help BAPA continue its valuable work in our neighborhood.
