The realization of citizen's participation in cities administration requires creating capacities in the institutional and organizational dimensions of urban spaces. From this approach, in order to realize participation and along with the formation of structural elements such as city councils, factors that are related to status and communication capacities between urban management organizations and citizens in urban spaces are concerned. Regarding the theoretical idea, and with the aim of identifying the components of institutional capacity-management of urban spaces and its relationship with citizen participation, the present study examined this issue in Tabriz district No. 8.The problems that urban management is faced with in this area that is related to the lack of active citizenship can be the lack of urban management revenue, the weakness in the provision of services to citizens, lack of cooperation of citizens for paying duties to the municipality, irresponsibility of citizens toward the issue of cleaning up neighborhoods,, neglecting the priorities of citizens in implementing urban projects, unfamiliarity with citizenship rights, etc. The research method is a descriptive and correlation study which was conducted using library-documentary and field study (questionnaire and interview). The sample size was estimated to be 384 according to the size of the statistical population. Data reliability was calculated using Cronbach's alpha coefficient of 0.76. Through implementing one-sample T test, the two first hypothesis of the research based on the unfavorable status of participation and the low management-institutional capacity of urban spaces for Citizens' Participation in District NO. 8 was approved.The result of the stepwise regression test showed that the component of government's attitude toward participation with the إeta coefficient of 0.469 had the most effect among the components of institutional-managerial substrates. Then, the components of the role of mass media, the role of popular organizations and the creation of opportunities for communication with urban management with Beta coefficients of 0.443, 0408 and 0370 were in subsequent steps. Also, the result of Pearson correlation test shows that there is a relationship between participation and institutional and managerial components involved in citizen participation in the studied area.
