Public participation which plays an important role in urban planning (Craig et al. 2002; Faga 2006), is based on people’s continuing interest and concern for a place. Attractive locations draw the interest of a wide variety of people and capture attention by responding to popular demand for such places. This enables them to continue to meet the needs of people, consequently these spots are always lively for both residents and visitors.
