The results showed that the level of community participation was very good at the partnership level (level 6) where the position of the village government and the community became equal in authority and responsibility. It can be seen that participation is following Arnstein's characteristics, namely: initiation of submission of ideas and proposals from the community which is carried out in stages through Banjar institutions through customary and service groups. planning is still being assisted by another party, namely the Bali State Polytechnic, the power-sharing structure is carried out through Pokdarwis with Bumdes.
