Whether business owners and residents like it or not, Koreatown doesn't appear to be going away. In fact, it's growing. It has the support of the city, the majority of property owners, and has the added resource of investors in Korea.
Residents, board member Ben Schweng said, have always been invited to add their input. "None of this went on beyond closed doors," he said. "The city council has known about this — they approved our name."
That might not please everyone, but Schweng believes it will ultimately benefit them. "Democracy doesn't mean that you always get what you want," he said, adding that there have been disagreements among board members, too. "We want to be judged on what we're doing for the neighborhood, which is a lot I think."
