The study deals with smallest spatial developing unit, the so called micro-regional tier. This tier had developed during the transition process. Institutionalism and operation of the organizations of micro-regions can be linked to three periods during the transition decade. The 1990s was the first period, known as the “early days”. In this period there was a diffuse atomized local municipality system with micro-regional co-operations mainly in the rural areas, which supported the villages with the aim of enhancing their lobbying capacity. During the second period these organizations operated as a bottom-up model and gained different financial resources for the common infrastructure development and started a way of micro-regional thinking. The third period started after the appearance of the 1996/21 Act (on physical planning and spatial development). It was a significant milestone for micro-regional co-operation, because this act defined the micro-regional level and declared micro-regional co-operation in the Spatial Development Association of Municipalities. The micro-regional tier can be named the tier of bottom-up and local will. In the rural areas, it meant a social innovation process, which is the result of this tier and is strengthened by the modified spatial development act in 2004.
