The 195 Redevelopment Commission has decided to open to the public Monday’s meeting with the new owners of the Pawtucket Red Sox, who want to move the team from McCoy Stadium to a new ballpark that would be built on about 9 acres of former 195 land on the Providence riverfront.
Principal owners Larry Lucchino and James Skeffington are scheduled to discuss the stadium plans with commission members. The meeting was originally scheduled as an executive session that was to have been closed to the public.
``Recognizing the high level of public interest in the proposal for a stadium on the 195 land, and in consultation with the Paw Sox owners, the 195 Commission has decided to hold an open session’’ for presentation of the stadium proposal, according to a news release from commission spokeswoman Dyana Koelsch.
The event is slated for 4 p.m. Monday, April 27, at commission headquarters at 315 Iron Horse Way in Providence.
