Strengthening of municipal democracy is a topical issue in the sphere of local self-government. The activity of citizens in addressing issues of local importance remains insufficient, although the legislation provides a lot of forms of direct participation in the implementation of local self-government. One of the most popular forms is territorial public self-government. It provides an opportunity for residents of local territories of the municipal entity to independently solve various problems related to the territory of their joint residence. Similar institutions are known in foreign municipal practice and are supported by the state. Although in the Russian Federation territorial public self-government has a legal regulation, however, in the last year a draft law has been prepared. It was aimed at state support of territorial public self-government. It justifies the new status of this form of municipal democracy, the strengthening of the material base. The analysis carried out in the article supplements the scientific and theoretical description of territorial public self-government as a form of independent solution of local issues by the population.
