Alexander Degan is living proof. The 75-year-old takes advantage of the city’s network of trails along the Arkansas River and Gathering Place, a new $ 465 million park that opened in 2018 and provides an ideal opportunity for adults to exercise outdoors. “It’s very good with the River Trails, the Gathering Place, the number of parks we have,” he says. “There is an accessibility to the city center.”

For Harris, such positive policy changes all begin with examining the data to find solutions: “It’s objective thinking.”
