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 provides ever-evolving services, events, and programs to strengthen the Beverly Hills/Morgan Park community.Programs
BAPA’s mission-driven programs focus on issues that enhance our quality of life: safety, schools, housing, shopping, business services, communications, and beautification.
- We help our neighbors solve problems and find resources on issues that include finding reliable tradespeople, preserving the quality of homes, securing services, enhancing community safety, supporting local schools, beautifying public areas, and much more.
- We promote local shopping, provide B2B networking, host professional workshops for small businesses, offer opportunities for businesses to partner on special events, provide free development resources, and welcome members to use the BAPA Business Center for work and meetings.
- In the BAPA Community Room we host meetings and workshops on a variety of topics, from Social Media Boot Camps for small businesses to Property Tax Appeal Workshops for residents. We also provide the Community Room as a low-cost space for local groups to host meetings, workshops, small events and performances.
