Community infrastructural projects are basic requirements by any settlement for its effective and proper functioning and vital for the overall regional development of the area. The objectives of this study are to appraise the physical community projects by social groups/organization and government in Zungeru, examine the impact of self help community development efforts in the area, review problems associated with community development organizations and finally attempt physical planning measures to ensure effective CBOs development efforts in the study area. Data were procured through primary and secondary source and simple analytical statistical frequency methods were utilized. Various community based projects were found to have been executed by both the private organizations and the government but with little impact. To resolve the problems of effective community facility provision in the study area, it is recommended among other things that physical planning must be embraced since it involves the creation of functionally efficient and aesthetically friendly environment for living, working, circulation and recreation, the government should make available institutions that extend credit facilities at very low interest rate to CBOs for projects development and above all, the Federal government should encourage and assist the states, local government areas and communities in infrastructural development drives.
