Participation of local communities in balanced district development. Lipowa as a case study
Summary.

The research was conducted in Lipowa District in the western part of the Żywiec Valley. The used research method was a survey with a self administered questionnaire. A combination of random and cluster samples was employed. The findings demonstrated that the one fifth of the respondents knew about The District Development Plan, and only 14% respondents were aware of the community consultations conducted in connection to the Plan. The respondents considered the following strategic goals as most important: reduction of the unemployment, the development of the infrastructure of the District, support for private enterprises of the citizens of the District and development of the touristic and recreational potential of the District. The water and sewage infrastructure, improvement of the transport infrastructure and building the water reservoir in the Zimnik Valley were considered as crucial for the local community. According to the respondents, the economic growth of the District depends on the infrastructure and broadening of the touristic offer. Only 10% of the respondents considered agriculture, manufacturing or services as crucial for the District economic growth. Whereas the respondents were aware of the environmental issues, the majority would allow industrial investment that could have a negative impact on the environment in the District, should it solve the economic issues of the local community.
