Beverly Area Planning Association (BAPA) works to connect
commercial investors and business entrepreneurs to opportunities in Chicago's
Beverly/Morgan Park neighborhood. Known for its outstanding vintage homes,
well-educated and high income residents, and robust schedule of cultural,
athletic and social activities, Beverly/Morgan Park is the perfect pairing for
eager, discerning shoppers and businesses that want to succeed.
BAPA's business-focused programs are designed to direct
businesses to “village in the city” style commercial vacancies in shopping districts
that surround our many Metra commuter stations as well as along main-street
arteries like Western Avenue.
Once new businesses are open, BAPA plays a key role in their
success by connecting owners with experts in business services, promoting local
shopping, providing business workshops and networking events, and staging
popular special events that draw target customers to business doorsteps.
BAPA is a respected not-for-profit community-based civic
organization founded in 1947 and continuously refreshing its services to a
smart, thriving, beautiful city neighborhood. In addition to business services,
BAPA provides programs that impact the community’s outstanding quality of life
