Problem setting. The paper specifies the application of benchmarking methods to evaluate the effectiveness of managing the territorial community development. Available open data on the research objects activities have been used, which is especially relevant in conditions of limited funds  and resources for additional research to obtain analytical information. Based on the application of benchmarking, the effectiveness of managing the development of urban territorial communities, which belong to the main industrial centres of Lviv Region, except the city of Lviv, was compared. This approach meets the requirements for the selection of objects for benchmarking research, in particular, for the similarity of their economic, demographic, geographical, and other conditions.

The research takes into account three groups of indicators that characterize the economic, environmental, and social areas of urban territorial communities. Such indicators have been selected that depend on the  quality of community development management, and data on them is publicly available. It is important that these indicators can be used in the future to analyze changes in the condition of these areas in territorial communities and monitor changes in the quality of managing their development. The number of indicators may vary for the economic, environmental, and social areas. The research used three indicators for each area, a total of nine.

The approach, in which each urban territorial community received relative scores (from 0 to 1) for each of the nine indicators, was used for comparative analysis. The closer the result is to 1, the better the state is on a specific indicator, which characterizes the effectiveness of managing the development of urban territorial community in the economic, environmental or social areas. Using this approach makes it possible to compare the state of community development not only within a single indicator but for all indicators at the same time.

The results of such evaluation make it possible to identify weaknesses in managing the development of territorial communities and may be one of the elements of the initial data for future monitoring of changes in the managerial competencies of their management.
