Sustainable infrastructural development is aimed at meeting the most basic needs of the emerging population inthe cities. However, to foster sustainable infrastructural development, there is a need for community integration in urban development in Nigeria. Individuals should be encouraged to interact in communities where they live and participate in civic life. Although the provision of essential services is the primary function of government in all societies of the world, well-meaning individuals in the society can be inspired to interact and actively participate in the development of their communities by contributing their own resources to the provision of essential social services needed in their immediate environments/communities. This paper discussed the sustainable infrastructural development in cities as it relates to provision of basic amenities such as housing, clean water supply, and sanitation. It also highlights community integration in urban development and sustainable infrastructural development in Nigeriaas a way to achieving SDG 6.
