Nearly two-dozen foreign heads of state will be at the Washington Convention Center tomorrow and Tuesday to discuss nuclear security.
As a result, a three block radius will be fenced off to the public during the summit and all roads within that fence will be closed.
"There will be some inconveniences," D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty says. "We will have to do things differently than we are accustomed to. But I think that's a small price to pay for living in the nation's capital."
For Sherelle Courtney, the price may not be that small. She lives in a low-income housing complex that's located within the fenced-off area.
"Since the Convention Center's here, we have no control," Courtney says. "This is something big that's going on, we can't do nothing but deal with it. Two days, we'll just deal with it."
During the summit, Courtney and her neighbors will have to pass through airport-like security to get into their homes.
