Results and Discussion
The results of prioritizing the items related to the most important field of citizen participation, according to the citizens surveyed, indicate that it is more important than the "wish of your family to participate in the development of neighborhood activities" (average rating: 4.84 and standard deviation of 0.45), "Participation in socio-cultural issues of the neighborhood" (average rating: 4.26 and standard deviation of 0.714), "Participation in economic affairs and neighborhood financial assistance" (average rating: 4.56 and standard deviation of 0.737) and "willingness to transfer property for renovation and improvement of the neighborhood" (average rating: 3.99 and standard deviation of 1.14). The results of prioritizing the items related to the most important obstacles to the participation of citizens in restoring and modernizing the worn out tissue from the viewpoint of the citizens surveyed indicate that it is more important than the "lack of credit for the development of worn out tissues" (average Rating: 4.22 and standard deviation of 1.14), "high cost of building materials and construction" (average rating: 3.62 and standard deviation of 1.17), "lack of proper functioning of social cultural organizations In the neighborhood "(average rating: 2.87 and standard deviation of 0.946) and" non-availability of machinery to the neighborhood center "(average rating: 3.63 and standard deviation of 1.22). Showed results that variable people's trust in the authorities (Beta = 0.415) and lack of socio-cultural organization of people in the neighborhood (Beta = -0.398) than other independent variables have the highest positive and negative effects in predicting the dependent variable (the level of participation and their willingness to organize and renovation of the old Fahadan neighborhood.
The final results of the study showed that six variables were entered into regression analysis (three variables as effective variables and three variables as barriers that had a negative effect), and the variable of people's trust in authorities and the absence of public cultural associations in the neighborhood Other independent variables have the most positive and negative effects, respectively, in predicting the dependent variable (level of popular participation and their tendency for organizing and modernizing the exhausted texture of the Fahadan neighborhood). Therefore, based on the obtained results, it can be said that trust in authorities is the most important factor affecting popular participation in improving the deteriorated texture of the Fahadan neighborhood of Yazd and the lack of social cultural organizations. The most important barrier is the popular participation in the improvement of the worn-out texture. Therefore, the following suggestions can be made based on the results: It is suggested that, in order to increase the level of people's trust to the authorities, in the first stage, meetings with the people of the area will be held and the objectives of the proposed plan (organizing and modernizing the worn-out texture) will be fully and clearly explained to the public. Be sure to be consulted and used at the planning stage for the local elite.
