Monitoring and the recording of changes occurring in land use is of great importance for the proper planning and sustainable growth. As a result of the unplanned, brutal growth of the cities, forests, wetlands, briefly, all natural areas around the city are disappearing. This is causing major environmental problems. For monitoring changes occurring in land use, remote sensing methodology offers significant advantages. Thus, in this study by using satellite data, temporal changes of land use in Cigli district has been examined (1984-2015). By applying supervised classification techniques in remote sensing to Landsat TM and the OLI data changes occurring in a period of 31 year in land use were analyzed. The findings obtained contradicts with the results of the studies concerning other cities and towns in Turkey. In other words, urban growth in Turkey  while generally causing major damage to forests and fertile agricultural lands ,urban development in Cigli district is not towards the forest  and agricultural areas. District of Cigli growing without damaging the fertile areas ecologically and economically,  has grown to the north pasture and southern dune area . According to the findings Çigli city, rapidly growing like the other cities of Turkey, while covering an area of 1121 ha in 1984, expanded to an area of 3510 km² in 2015. Despite the expected contraction of forest and farmland as a result of the increase occurring in urban areas, such a situation was out of question in Cigli district. In this respect, land use and land cover change that occurred in the Cigli district set an example for  other places in Turkey.
