    Our goal was to make recommendations for infrastructure designs and management options for informal traders to be used in the central business district (CBD) of Mitchells Plain in Cape Town, South Africa. We interviewed traders in the marketplace to communicate their concerns and suggestions to the City. We proposed canopy options and management improvements for the market. This project produced proposals for improvement in four main areas; infrastructure, waste management, merchandise transportation and storage. With implementation, the recommendations would improve the functionality of the marketplace.
