OM 14-02 Daniels v. Warwick Long Term Facilities Planning Committee – No Violation

The Warwick Long Term Facilities Planning Committee did not violate the OMA when it held its November 15, 2013 meeting at a location that could not accommodate a large number of attendees. The OMA "does not require a public body to provide unlimited seating." See In re Town of West Warwick, ADV OM 99-02. Nor did we find any evidence that the Committee purposefully held the meeting at a location to minimize public attention and attendance.
