Integrated urban management is a modern theory proposed officially in Iran during the last one or two decades with the aim of reducing urban expenses especially in Tehran municipality. Inconsistencies among managing organizations result in confusion of urban organizations and wasting material and spiritual capital, in a way that sometimes decisions made by urban service organizations contrast with one another. Nowadays, lack of integrated urban management has imposed multiple costs to the urban economy and ultimately challenged urbanization culture.
The present article seeks to find a solution for integrated urban management and development of urbanization culture and exploiting capabilities and opportunities in all sections. Descriptive-analytic methods are used. In theoretical discussion, historical method are applied based on available data. Results indicate that in accordance with urbanization growths in Tehran and development of different organizations, disagreement between decisions and plans and disturbances in urban environment have intensified. Urban management is mutually related with the development of urbanization culture. Urbanization culture is shaped in accordance with urban management.
Investigations indicate that there is no mutual relationship between urban managers in building urban spaces. Organized and beautiful space results in cultural growth and development. According to the research findings, most of inconsistencies in Tehran are related to excavations performed by organizations working in water, power and telecommunication sectors which causes mental distress and social anomalies. These inconsistencies are more sensible in southern parts of the city and fewer inconsistencies are observable in northern parts.
