Wpływ rad dzielnic na politykę władz samorządowych Krakowa – analiza na wybranych przykładach
Oficyna Wydawnicza AFM
Districts of the city of Krakow, in addition to decision-making powers related to the implementation of the statutory tasks, have the ability to give opinions and come up with proposals on important issues affecting local communities they represent. Districts are trying to infl uence the shape of both the urban and commercial investments and impact the city’s policy on spa-tial planning. Municipality support units in their activities support the demands of residents and often participate in social protest movements. The most glaring example of the promotion of social protest movements by the auxiliary units of the municipality is the attitude of districts authorities to protests of residents known as NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard), i.e. the social protest of people who express their opposition to certain investments made in their immediate neighborhood, although they do not deny that they are needed at all.
