Need more trees and shade around the streets of major shopping areas to encourage walking
Living in the valle of the sun creates a lot of desire to commute with personal cars to avoid the sun. This is especially true in the spring to early fall months. More trees between the streets and sidewalks would shade the pedestrians as well as give a more pleasant walk. Not to mention the environmental benefits. And placed around large shopping centers, would reduce the need to drive from intersection to intersection.
