Abstract: 

Small towns and their role in special planning of the developing countries included in the strategies of urban development. Global experience in this field indicate the fact that solving the problems of big cities is in debt to the serious support of small towns. At a local level too, the spread of development to rural areas is guaranteed by the development of small towns. Small towns in Iran are in the center of the relationship between rural areas and urban districts. These cities not only play an important role in the progression of agriculture as a center for service distribution and a market for the croops, but also are considered a major factor in commercializing agriculture in rural areas. The main concern of the present study is to recognize and describe the role of small towns -like Razan- in local development and to provide suggestion based on the previous experiences. With regard to the hypotheses and discussed viewpoints in this field, the function of Razan town in local development is studied. In this direction, in addition to the literature regarding local development, scientific methods, factorization method, and numerical Taxonomy model are used. The results show that although Razan from the viewpoint of urban development and the variety of urban functions is considered a developed town and has caused such a sense of development to permeat through the area and to establish new relationships as well as stability in local settlements and spacial organization among the area, it has encountered lots of problem and shortages and in order to achieve an idea condition in which all settlement districts enjoy the development equally, it needs to trek a long way. In this direction, one should pay attention to both the innercity role of Razan and its function in local development to let the town provide services and facilities for its residents and help the whole vicinity develop successfully. Therefore, the urban and local structure should develop in an integrated systematic manner to let Razan provide desired services and facilities for its residents and consequently help the whole vicintly develop.
