OM 19-25 Doe v. Cranston Planning Commission Violation Found

The Complainant alleged that the Commission violated the OMA when it held a site visit where members of the public were separated from the Commission members. The undisputed evidence revealed that during the site visit, a quorum of the Commission engaged in a "collective discussion" outside the public purview about a matter over which the Commission has "supervision, control, jurisdiction or advisory power." Accordingly, we found the Commission violated the OMA. We did not find that the evidence indicated a willful or knowing violation. VIOLATION FOUND
