Abstract

In, the beginning of the 20th century, Pila was a provincial administrative centre and a rail junction. In the late 20th century, of the will of the communist decision-makers, it became the capital of Pila Voivodeship. Political transformation of 1989, and, as a result, Pila’s degradation back to the smalltown administrative centre has led to a diminishing of Pila’s economical attractiveness. Actions undertaken by the local government and its cooperation, both with the neighbouring localities and the economical community made it possible to control the degradation process. Concurrently, the attempts to seek new areas of activity, such as building a new research centre and numerous economical initiatives funded by the region and the EU have given the local community an inspiration to make a change and have increased the social potential of the area.
