Municipal Roles

Municipal commitment as a commercial leverage

The municipality can play an active role in the management of the Municipality Retail Framework. By its status, it can arbitrate between the expressed needs of the private sector and the necessities of the municipal responsibility in the management of the territory.

The commitment here refers to different capacities of the municipality to play a determining role in the quality of commercial development. Urban intervention is more in terms of the strategy of the commercial development and the orientation that it wishes to imprint to the business offer while taking into account the different realities of the neighborhoods of the territory.

Experience shows that the role of arbitration produces a significant leverage effect in the commercial development of the territory. The private sector thus benefits from spin-offs that would have been impossible without municipal intervention.

The current development of municipalities will challenge municipalities to take an interest in the commercial development of their territories.
