KOREATOWN (KNX1070) - There's a lot of pushback on plans to a homeless shelter in Koreatown.

Some business and community leaders say they fear a "mini skid row" will be created in Koreatown under the mayor's plan for a homeless shelter in that area.

The proposed shelter would be at Vermont and Wilshire boulevards.
