Abstract: The aim of this paper is to present the reader with the practices, the challenges and the benefits of the changing patterns in urban planning. There is a necessity to implement measures that focus on the population’s needs, and to merge the potential of urban planning and the townspeople’s memories in response to the phenomenon of the redevelopment of downtown. The opportunity of the insertion of municipal administrators, developers, designers and most importantly townspeople in the process, ensures the commitment to arising outcomes and enhances the potential of urban planning. Also, the process should have a restricted number of clear goals to avoid losing the space potential and the connections to the memories of the city’s residents. Redeveloping cities’ downtowns have been a critical issue to tackle as the need arises to revive and modernize the old parts of the cites, usually ending with the destruction of the history and the space memories in those parts leading to the loss of its connection with the city’s residents and erasing the spirit of the city piece by piece. One example of such approaches is observed on the reconstruction of Beirut, Lebanon Central District (BCD), starting from 1991 and the reconstruction of Al-Abdali which is one of the most strategic and old locations in the city of Amman, Jordan in 2004 For this reason, this paper is devoted to discuss information, which can form the basis for the urban development. And set theoretical ground rules for cooperation with the public and allowing for their participation in the urban development process.
