Three Young Renovators Who Are Rebuilding Their City

Cory Armand, Joseph Peterson, and Deena Johnson are rebuilding their city one house at a time. The trio of private investors has renovated more than 80 homes, more than the 48 the local government recently tore down in a neighborhood, and the 16 apartments in the city's downtown area.
