The objective of this project is the creation of a guidelined management model to optimize public spaces and urban services. The indicators composing the computerized Balanced Scorecard of the model provide information of the subsystems that make up the spaces and its utilities in four strategic blocks that allow their expansion. The model is founded on the basis of systematically collecting data and then processing the data to create quality indexes from the analyzed sections, depending on the level of degradation of its subsystems, as well as the estimated repair costs. This information makes it possible to prioritize the type of intervention to be made by the manager. The purpose of this model is to be used, in the future, to estimate the durability of the different elements that compose the roads and to manage them in a more sustainable way. The model was tested on the urban sprawl of Mataró (Barcelona), which consists of a total of 141,5 km of roads and 331 crossroads, analyzed with its public furnishings and fixtures
