Urban planning is a combination of land use, housing, and transportation planning in urban environments. The goal of an urban planning professional is to design and improve communities both economically and socially. Urban management ensures the functionality of the city. That one gets water at home, that a road can transport goods and people, that land is provided for various activities essential for its residents, that public interest is safeguarded against individual and firms’ interests and that repairs are carried out on infrastructure networks before it starts affecting people’s lives. Urban management assures that basic urban services are provided to the population and various private, public, and community stakeholders perform and maximize their intrinsic roles in a harmonic manner.
