Municipal management and recreational public spaces sustainability in a district in the northeast of Peru
Main Article Content
The objective of the study was to determine if the strategies implemented by the municipal management improve the recreational public spaces sustainability. The research was carried out in Tarapoto City, Peru in 2020. The sample consisted of 384 people, including architects, municipal officials, and Tarapoto district residents. Surveys were conducted through written questionnaires to determine if the strategies implemented by the municipal management improve the recreational public spaces sustainability. The independent variable was the strategies implemented by the municipal management, described by 9 dimensions: institutionality, territorial programs, social control, access to information, accountability, spatial relationship, resource allocation, technology and communication, and project execution. The dependent variable was the public spaces sustainability, defined by 6 dimensions: design and equipment, accessibility, safety, environmental quality, comfort and social appropriation. It was determined that the strategies implemented by the municipal management significantly improve (p <0.01) the recreational public spaces sustainability in Tarapoto City through a correlation by ranges ρ = 0.935 and a determination coefficient R2 = 0.938, suggesting that 93.8% of the variation in the recreational public spaces sustainability is explained by the strategies implemented by the municipal management. It was estimated that the implemented strategies level by municipal management is regularly efficient in 66.67% and the sustainability of recreational public spaces in Tarapoto City is good in 63.54%.
