Nowadays, increasing cities population and difficulties due to the centralized programming approach that leading to the disorderliness in cities at one side and awareness and increasing citizens rights at the other side; necessitate the reexamining in urban management and city management. due to the radical changes in cities’ developmental management, in addition to the mentioned approach, we need to deploy a decentralized approach in urban organization or apply a good urban governance with citizens cooperation simultaneously, so for removing current problems in urban development we should take into account the local organizations and governmental and non-governmental organization. The goal of this research is to consider Shahrekord performance in the framework of good urban governance. The research method is descriptive-analytical method, and data and information for this research gathered through field study and used measuring method, and subjects include sample of 330 shahrekod citizens. In this research we applied four standards for good urban governance i.e cooperation, efficiency, transparency and accountability, and for data processing and analyzing we used SPSS software. Findings show that efficiency has a mean equals to 2.95, cooperation 2.67, accountability with a satisfying mean equals to 2.59, and transparency is 2.58. so shahrekords’ municipal performance in the framework of good performance is unsuitable, so research hypothesis which imply on suitable municipal performance at the framework of good urban management is unsatisfying and not being proven.
