Growing cities across the globe face a number of challenges and problems, which pose a great threat to their citizens. Bamako - the fastest growing city in Africa and the sixth in the world - currently faces huge challenges in the implementation of urban planning tools, which may become increasingly difficult to resolve as the city continues to grow. In an attempt to gain a holistic view of the challenge, 646 questionnaires were given to its common citizens, 32 questionnaires were given to Neighborhood Development Committee (CDQ) members, and 11 interviews were conducted in 32 neighborhoods (quarters) in the 06 Communes of Bamako District. Upon a simple review of percentages, this study discovered that planning orientation tools are not being implemented and plans are not respected in Bamako District. The city continues to progressively demolish, amid plans to convert public facilities into dwellings - much to the concern of local residents.
