Abstract Urban Community Facilities have a huge potential for urban development. With them, it is possible to create urban environments with higher socio-spatial quality and a coherent spatial distribution. For this reason, the different ways of planning the implementation of Urban Community Facilities need to be understood, both in their qualitative and technical aspects. This article, through a review of technical and scientific literature, explores different criteria that can be used in the implementation of Urban Community Education Facilities. It approaches characteristics of the surroundings, capacity measurement, sphere of influence, accessibility, circulation and the relationship between these facilities and urban sustainability. The article concludes that the careful planning of Urban Community Facilities is essential to ensure a better development of the urban environment and to facilitate public management.
