This paper provides a brief summary of the affairs surrounding the demilitarisation of the town of Pola, in Croatia, and it gives a series of considerations on the role that ‘citizen expertise’ and strategic planning could have played in the processes employed to make use of the abandoned military areas, putting a question mark over the capacity of the town to be autocephalous, or in other words its ability to carry through strategic plans on its own. This case also highlights the important issue of the temporary reuse of abandoned military areas and the involvement of local communities in these processes.
