EN Military units located in the territory of individual communes have a varied impact on local development. Their importance is potentially greater in smaller communes, where military units as employers, tax payers, principals and contractors, as well as entities integrating the life of the local community, play one of the key roles in the context of boosting development. In these communes there is a strong link between the military unit, its size and the condition of the commune, where the majority of activity is linked to the presence of the military. The units in these locations influence the presence in the commune of a specific combination of characteristics that distinguish this space from other territorial units. One of such communes is the commune of Orzysz located in the Warmian Masurian Voivodeship, whose development path has been linked to the military unit located there for many decades. Therefore, the following research objective was adopted. The aim of research is to determine how the local government and residents of asmall city see a military unit located on its territory in the context of its participation in social and economic development processes and its assistance in searching the new development path by commune using the example of Orzysz. The objective was achieved applying the following research methods - literature analysis, the diagnostic survey, utilising the interview technique and theCATI, text mining.
