It is legally required to inform the public of exactly what is known and will be discussed specific time before the meeting. The upside of this is that the error was caught and they are serious about providing an opportunity for a legally binding vote. If the meeting had been held anyway that could invalidate the process.
The brittleness of these hearings really is a problem that devalues the process as a whole.

Did you get this wrong? According to the Business Times today......The commission approved the EIR for 555 Washington on a 4-3 vote

MK - You are correct but there is still a delay because ...
"Public notices sent to neighbors of the proposed North Beach-adjacent project downtown failed to note that parks and planning commissioners today would vote on agenda item 8, according to Planning Director John Rahaim.
The item related to changes to Mark Twain Alley, which is proposed to be vacated, landscaped and improved as part of the project and connected with a revitalized Redwood Park to improve pedestrian experiences.
Commissioners plan to meet again April 15 to vote on items numbered six through eight on today’s nine-item agenda."
