OM 19-07 Mancini v. City of Providence City Plan Commission - No violation

Complainant alleged that the City of Providence Plan Commission violated the OMA when it failed to properly notice and maintain minutes of a site visit. The undisputed evidence revealed that only three of the seven Commission members attended the site visit, which was less than a quorum. Additionally, there was no evidence that the Commission members engaged in discussions during the site visit regarding any matter over which the Commission has supervision, control, jurisdiction or advisory power, or that a third party served as a conduit between Commission members so as to create a rolling quorum. Accordingly, this Office determined that the OMA was not implicated during the site visit and that no violation occurred.
