Cities today are centers of different information and a number of activities. This huge concentration of different contents results in the growth of urban structures. The sense of community, while responding to various needs and wishes of its members, gives a city its real significance. Precisely because of that, there are many discussions about new forms of representation and citizen inclusion in planning and shaping of cities. The question that presents itself is how we can change the city that no longer reflects the wishes of its inhabitants. Also, there is talk of creating a “good city”, “just city” and achieve “the right to the city”. What all these concepts have in common is the right for citizen participation in urban spaces, but also for creating new spaces that will lead to the development of a dignified and meaningful life. The bottom – up strategy is stressed in local planning and includes involvement of different groups of participants from the earliest phase, which is then present throughout the whole planning and decision making process. Therefore, this paper shows the way in which participatory management (institutional participation through local authorities and city districts, and participation outside institutions through various initiatives and citizen associations) are put at citizens' disposal in the local community and the way in which participation potentials are used in the local community. Based on the results acquired by the research, it is visible that there are structures enabling citizens to get actively involved, but there are also many faults in the mentioned structures. These faults disable citizens' participative potential to be achieved when it comes to planning and local community shaping.
