Today, the problem of single-industry economies of individual territories is present in many countries of the world. Despite the various causes and the different structure of this dependence, all of them have a number of common problems at once, the main of which is a small degree of resistance to emerging crises. Any crisis arising in a key sector of the economy of such a city, or arising at a city-forming enterprise, can lead to extremely difficult socio-economic consequences. In Russia, this problem is also quite common, including as a legacy of the era of the planned economy. For a long time, in Russia there was no unified policy for managing single-industry towns, but several years ago the situation changed and a large-scale state program to support single-industry towns was initiated. Unfortunately, significant results with its help could not be achieved. Support measures were insufficient, and the global strategy did not take into account all the scenarios for the development of a single-industry town. As part of the study, the theoretical base was studied, both domestic and foreign. On a real-life example, the effectiveness of the implemented policy was analyzed. General recommendations were developed to improve support measures, and a methodology was proposed for choosing the optimal scenario for the development of a single-industry town. These proposals, when applied as part of a future strategy, can make public policy regarding single-industry towns more efficient and accurate.
