  21. 21. Overview  My surveyors didn’t seem very positive about the mall they said that it was problems like traffic, wildlife, and too much crime. Most of the people I survey they were just running out the house for last minute items. The negative effect that the mall have can be reduce by getting more police and less stop lights. The problem is not the size of the mall because if you get a bigger mall that means more people which mean more crime and traffic. If I was to design a mall I would look at wildlife, streets, the area and if it already have bad traffic, and the way the water runoff.
