The fundamental issues in order to achieve urban sustainable development, is recognition urban framework pattern and trying to achieve desirable urban form. The aim of this study is to assess the capacity of communities' form based on compressed pattern. Research method in terms of the nature, is descriptive-analytic type and in terms of purpose, is an applied type. In order to collect information, statistical blocks of 2011 were used. To extract and classify the information, this research has been utilized by software (GIS). Entropy method for determining the intermix ratio of 22 Babolsar city neighborhoods have been used, also to classify neighborhoods form, COPRAS method is used. Results show that, the main indexes related to compact form (building density, population, land mixed-use, ratio of car ownership, etc.) have a favorable situation in semi—compact neighborhoods including Shahrak saheli, Shahrak daneshgah, Shahrak azadegan and Nokhostvaziry and semi—dispersed neighborhoods including Yormahale bala, Shahrk ghaem, Ketiben, Olompaye and Javahery and these neighborhoods have a relatively higher potential for implementing a compact growth pattern, and in neighborhoods such as Bibi Serrosh, the amount of Qj obtained has the greatest difference with other neighborhoods therefore, it has the lowest potential. According to the results, the growth pattern in most urban neighborhoods shows a dispersed form which, in light of the advantages of the compact form in the context of effective planning and management, creates more sustainability for such sites.
