Development program should result in resolution for public problems. There is a need to harmonize the longterm program (i.e. RPJMD) with its budget allocation. It found that some regions did not have those synchronized programmed, including Kabupaten Blitar. The spirit of increasing public wealth did not follow with the budget that tends to allocate in routine expenses. In that, this research is encouraged to see how program development practices in Blitar through Musrenbang. The results show that the Musrenbang already covered those kinds of public participation. Because the guidelines already mentioned it in its guiding book. So, they obey it. Unfortunately, when the proposal is submitted to the higher level, i.e. Musrenbang Kabupaten, the program are not inline with a longterm plan. This condition may cause the proposal are rejected or even accepted it would not solve the fundamental problems identified by the government
