But the mayor also said the city faces many challenges especially violence.
"This violence will not stop until we all get involved. We do have it in our power to fix this. There is nothing broken here that cannot be fixed. No problem here that cannot be solved," says Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola.
Mayor Stodola asked everyone to take a more active role in suppressing the violence. He also called on all preachers to hit the streets and reach out to our youth.
