Urban renewal has become an important issue of sustainable urban development, and community micro-renewal is the basis of urban renewal. More and more grassroots governments begin to pay attention to and introduce policies to guide the development of community micro renewal. Considering the actual situation in China, based on the stakeholder theory, this paper analyzes the characteristics and composition of the core stakeholders from three dimensions: environmental improvement, space building, and infrastructure construction, as well as their role in the community micro-renewal, aiming to provide the basis for the relevant government departments to correctly understand the demands of different stakeholders and create suitable policies.
