The article is devoted to the problem of formation of criteria of ensuring stable development of a city. The article reveals specific features of functioning of subsystems of a city. It studies and reveals the essence of the patterns of equifinality. It provides information on origin of criteria and defines their basic content. The author formulates basic criteria with respect to the processes of ensuring reproduction of resources and regulation of flows in a city: specialisation, innovation, concentration and attractiveness. It defines the following criteria for reproduction processes: rationality, security, accessibility and renewal. According to the author, ensuring the process of regulation of flows in a city should correspond with the following criteria: optimality, intensiveness, load and ecology. The formed criteria are used for defining the essence of the "stable development of an individual system" notion as a prerequisite of formation of the author's theory of stable development of a city.
