Muzil is a small peninsula of 180 ha located at the south of the City of Pula. Until 2007 Muzil had been a military area after which it became the property of the city of Pula. After the military left the peninsula, the state put it under the control of armed soldiers to prevent its use by the citizens of Pula. The authorities decided to merge works at Muzil with large national tourist development project “Brijuni Revijera”; the project would have changed the concept of tourism in Croatia. The main idea is the development of exclusive touristic destination by giving under concessions or selling public areas in the Adriatic sea coastal zone. The urban plan proposed by the City of Pula included building of touristic resorts with 2500 beds, golf course and a small harbor on Muzil. According to the plan, the greatest share of the peninsula would be covered by a private golf course, closed for general public. The public green areas are planned on hilly parts of the peninsula, covered with dense vegetation, and therefore not easily accessible to the citizens. In 2009 the citizens of Pula organized "The Civil Initiative for Muzil" to oppose the urban plan. The initiative organized several debates and protests, and participated at the public hearing. They argued that the development of Muzil should be gradual and in accordance to the citizens’ needs, and asked to be involved in decision-making process. In August 2014, a survey on development of the peninsula was conducted among 400 participants as a part of the EU financed project “Public voices against corruption in the management of space and natural resources”. According to the survey results, the majority of citizens of Pula were against building of a golf course and demanded a referendum to decide about development of Muzil. In 2014 the State agency for management of state property (DUUDI) published a call for ideas for use of various ex-military locations and among them of Muzil. The citizens’ initiative demanded opening the area to public use, currently still under military control. They have been lobbying for political, economic and spatial autonomy of Muzil. In 2014 the citizen initiatives presented the “Muzil starter” project providing ideas on how to make temporary use of Muzil infrastructure in order to prevent its further deterioration and before a permanent optimal solution is found. "Muzil starter" was largely ignored by the local authorities and DUUDI. In 2015, the City Council of Pula presented “Spatial Plan of the County of Istria with accompanying strategic study of the environmental impact” which did not include changes demanded by the citizen of Pula. Announcement of a public call for investors has followed. There are two interested investors, American Forbes Real Estate LLC and French Boygues Batiment International, whose offers will be evaluated by the Croatian government.
