Ecologic streets through considering social, economic and environmental needs of the considered society, try to create the context of the presence of all the individuals. The existence of the criteria of the ecologic streets,inclusive streets and streets with visual and sensory qualities and sustainable development in city requires the process of designing urban ecologic street. The purpose of presenting this article is to consider effective criteria in planning ecologic street which is obtained through performing field studies and using library and internet-based documents. The strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of Enqelab have been extracted and classified in Expert Choice Software and finally through using SWOT matrix has been analyzed. Accordingly, the defensive approach in planning Enqelab has been obtained. Therefore, the determined strategies show the critical position of Enqelab street ecologically that should be considered in urban planning.
