In 20 days, the Republican National Convention comes to Cleveland — and downtown residents have a lot of questions about how it will affect their daily lives.

The Secret Service held a meeting for downtown residents Tuesday evening at the new Hilton Hotel on Lakeside Avenue.

The meeting was closed to the media because it was considered a subcommittee meeting of the Secret Service, but downtown residents tell Cleveland 19 News it answered some of their questions and concerns.

For Antoinette King, living downtown is convenient.

“I can walk to work, I don’t even have to drive,” she said.

But it may not be as convenient for residents during the RNC, when thousands of delegates and visitors will fill downtown Cleveland. Those who spoke with Cleveland 19 News said their biggest concerns are crowds and safety.
