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.
The Margarita Mile is back! Get a passport at BAPA or any of the participating locations and enjoy artisanal margaritas at bars and restaurants along Western Avenue plus Wild Blossom Meadery. Fill your passport to earn a Margarita Mile bandana and entry into a $100 Bucks Stay Here gift card raffle!
Weeding Wednesdays are back for the summer! Volunteers are invited to join BAPA staff on Wednesdays between 9 am and noon at parks, train stations, and other public spaces in our community. View locations and dates, and use our sign-up link to let us know when you are coming!
The BAPA Porch Concerts allow us to bring people together, support local musicians, and celebrate community in every corner of Beverly/Morgan Park! This music series is also a membership challenge that helps us recoup program costs by awarding concerts to the blocks with the most BAPA members.
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.
