Inside Hisen, a high-fashion boutique and bridal salon in the Koreatown Plaza, Donna Park excels at ironing and bargaining.

Neighbors overwhelmingly supported proposed limits on commercial development on a hilly, view property in Granada Hills at a hearing held by the Los Angeles Planning Department.
