CLEVELAND - Representatives from McDonald's Corporation and the city of Cleveland are expected to meet with residents of the Ohio City neighborhood Tuesday night to exchange more information about plans for a new McDonald's restaurant.
The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Franklin Circle Christian Church at 1688 Fulton Road.
Last week, a group of area residents protested in front of the proposed location of the new restaurant at the corner of Lorain Avenue and Fulton Road.
According to the "Say No to McDonald's in Ohio City" Facebook page, the group has also collected nearly 700 signatures against the development plan.
The city has also expressed opposition to the new fast-food location. The city's zoning review board rejected McDonald's current design plans.
Those in opposition say the new restaurant would create traffic, noise and litter problems -- and go against the "buy local" initiative that has become popular in what is now know as "Cleveland's Artisan Neighborhood."
