PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The I-195 Redevelopment District Commission in Rhode Island says a meeting about a proposed new stadium for the Pawtucket Red Sox will be open to the public, after initially being scheduled as a private session.
The state agency announced Friday that it decided to make Monday’s meeting open to the public after consulting with Larry Lucchino and other PawSox owners. The proposal originally was scheduled to be discussed in an executive session.
State boards and commissions can convene in private to discuss the sale or purchase of public land.
The proposed ballpark for the Triple-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox would sit on former highway land in Providence owned by the commission. PawSox owner James Skeffington has said there have been preliminary discussions about the land with the state.
