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 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.
Chicago is creating a new model for police oversight, accountability, and public safety—and you can be a part of it! Residents are encouraged to run for three elected positions to our new District Council. Petitions are due Nov. 28, 2022!
We're so grateful to all of the volunteers, musicians, food vendors, business partners, and neighbors who helped us pull off five amazing outdoor concerts in Beverly/Morgan Park this year. We hope you had as much fun as we did!
We've lost hundreds of parkway trees to disease, insects, and other culprits. Help us rebuild by requesting a FREE PARKWAY TREE today. Take a minute to fill out the form, and you'll be doing your part for the environment and our community.
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.
