The response of city residents to urban improvements, as well as the degree of their satisfaction with the urban physical environment are issues of special importance to urban-planners and decision-makers. Improvements in the urban physical environment (renewal of historical districts, upgrading of engineering infrastructure, expansion of the city’s road system, etc.) may not be evaluated positively because they do not adequately reflect expectations and needs of city-dwellers. When local financial resources are limited, future improvements in the urban physical environment must, therefore,be planned and prioritized according to their real importance to city residents.
