Abstract

The present study was designed to estimate the amount of urban services required by pilgrims and the fluid population of Mehran using planning-based methods. The research method is descriptive-analytical research. Needs assessment based on scientific methods to accurately and efficiently estimate the services required by the floating and fluid population for the city of Mehran is a research vacuum that has been addressed in this study. According to the findings: According to the planning method based on the per capita infrastructure of service spaces, a total of 38070 square meters of infrastructure is required to provide services to pilgrims. In this method, public transportation, housing, cultural, hospitality, financial, medical, health and communication services have the highest level, respectively. According to the second method of planning based on population thresholds, a total of 330,000 square meters of infrastructure is required to provide services to pilgrims. In this method, medical services, public transportation, finance, housing, hospitality, culture, health and communication have the highest level, respectively. The results of the research, while estimating the per capita amount required to provide services to Arbaeen pilgrims and the fluid population for the city of Mehran, pay attention to providing services to the fluid population in comprehensive and detailed plans, especially for border cities that can always be bridges of trade and tourism relations. It is emphasized because paying attention to this issue can pave the way for attracting tourists and raising the standard of tourism at the national level and a step for economic dynamism.
