In the content of this article, we aim to analyze the organization and functioning of the administrative apparatus in the Cajvana City, in order to identify the strategic directions and opportunities for the future development of the respective administrative-territorial unit. The research shows that the strategic development benchmarks of the community in the Cajvana City for the period 2016 - 2022 are: the development of the technical-urban infrastructure and the protection of the environment; increasing the quality of life; creating a competitive and prosperous economic environment; development of the leisure sector. From the interpretation of the answers received from the citizens in a survey based on a questionnaire regarding the future investment projects proposed by the local authority for the development of the Cajvana City, we found that the project "Building water and sewerage networks" is considered very important, and the project "Creation of an information point regarding the financing of European funds" is declared to be unimportant.
