CLEVELAND - Downtown Cleveland will look very different very soon.

Most noticeably, the huge LeBron James banner is coming down and a sign welcoming the Republican National Convention will go up in it's place.

Banners welcoming the RNC in July will get final approval from the city's planning commission Friday morning.

"'For 150 years Sherwin-Williams has been proud to call Cleveland home. This land is our land. 150 years in Cleveland.'" Clearly speaks to the pride that Sherwin-Williams has in our home town. This is an exciting time to be in Cleveland. Our new banner delivers a simple, welcoming message celebrating both Cleveland and our 150th anniversary," Ellen Moreau, a spokeswoman with Sherwin-Williams said in a statement Thursday.

And that's not the only change.

At the corner of High Street and Prospect Avenue, CNN is set to put their signage right outside the Harry Buffalo.

By the looks of the branding that was submitted to the city, they will set up the 'CNN Grill' during the week of the RNC.

Also, RNC banners and signage will go up shortly all over the city.

Just weeks ago, hundreds of people lined up for a chance to appear on the banners at an open casting call to find the 'Face of Cleveland.'
