Local institution

The purpose of community development might be to establish local institutions in the municipality, especially when these are missing or working inadequately in the given social sphere.
In this sense institutions are regularly repeated community activities, which become customs and traditions, and which provide lasting patterns and reliable frames of organization, available for users in the future as well. Institutionalisation takes place as a result of typical situations deriving from public agreement, specific and standard patterns of action, and expectations of conventional modes of operation and their becoming the norm and routine. It offers optimal response to certain social requirements. It is a wonderful experience for those who establish and create it. If posterity finds it useful, new generations will accept it as a natural part of their social world.
