>> yeah. the training program will encompass multiple training levels for caregivers and unpaid staff, so are some of these members not paid, like family members? >> no, it's not training for respite care workers. these are people that would be hired in the community. >> okay. so it's all aimed towards people that are paid? i was curious about that phrase. and then, how do people learn about this program? >> well, self-help, we'll be doing outreach within their community in particular because it is the asian and pacific island community, they have a pretty brought reach, and they also have programs that can feed into it internally. >> it's not a problem of not
1:01 pm
filling -- >> no. i anticipate it's going to be very successful. >> okay. thank you. >> thank you. >> i know self-help has their own inhome support staff service. is this training also open to the citywide besides their own staff? >> oh, absolutely. they'll be doing outreach to the wider community, not just their own staff. >> okay. another question i have is, like, the fringe benefit for part-time is 27%. isn't that a little bit high? i don't know -- i've been out of the workforce for such a long time. what does the 27% include? i know that when i was working, you have to pay health benefit for people that work 20 hours and up per week, but some of them are at, like, 10%, so are
1:02 pm
they still paying the housing insurance or what? >> yeah. i mean, the way the staffing is -- i mean, some of these, they're being shared across programs, so for example, you know, the compliance officer, they're directing 10% of their salary towards this, but that officer is a full-time officer. >> so that's why they have the full fringe benefits? >> correct. >> president serina: okay. any other comments or questions? tiffany, what language will the training be provided in? >> i have the information right here. so self-help, maybe they can speak to this better, but they have capacity for cantonese, mandarin, and vietnamese.

1:05 pm
consumers in districts one, two, four, and 11 in particular participate less in services than in other districts, and although limited awareness is not the only contributing factor, it was a finding that was noted throughout the needs assessment support. the peer ambassador program is one of several approaches the department is using to increase visibility of our services. by using peer ambassadors and a word of mouth approach, the department will have a new way and opportunity to share information about services, and the consumers will have another way to learn about services they may need from a source they trust within their communities. self-help for the elderly will
1:06 pm
hire four peer ambassadors to work in the districts i mentioned. at least one ambassador will be dedicated to each district to ensure continuity. they will share information about daas services within their appropriate district. they will use information tailored to the tridistricts a the communities within those districts. daas will work closely with self-help to ensure accurate information is distributed. peer ambassadors will be connected to our benefits and resource hub. they will have a working relationship with the adrcs within the districts. the daas hub and adrcs are
1:07 pm
great resources that the ambassadors will be able to access and refer consumers to as needed. collectively, the ambassadors will provide information to at least 200 organizations and businesses annually who have connections to consumers that we serve with the specific intent of increasing awareness about daas programs and services. thank you, and i would be happy to answer any questions you might have at this time. >> president serina: commissioner pappas? >> yes, i'm joining the other commissioners in asking an entry question. when we include the programs, those include the dignity fund programming? >> yes. >> president serina: any other commissioner comments or questions? commissioner loo. >> okay. i have a question. in the table a, it said they were going to hire five -- >> yeah, sorry.
1:08 pm
when i said that, i realized i had said four because i was not reading my notes correctly. they are actually hiring five. the minimum is four, but they're overcommitting, if you will. >> but my question here is on the salary sheet, it just says two peer ambassadors instead of four or five. >> because they're leveraging another source for the other two -- or actually, the other three. >> okay. that's what i think is really kind of nice is if they're matching, it would appear in the budget so it would make it cli kind of clear. >> on the budget revenues, on
1:09 pm
the summary sheet, it has match three, so it has the match there. >> thank you. my apologies. >> no worries. no worries. >> president serina: thank you. any other comments or questions? any comments or questions from the public? hearing none, may i have a motion to approve? >> so moved. >> second. >> president serina: thank you. any further comment? all in favor? any opposed? thank you. >> thank you very much. >> president serina: thank you. item f, requesting authorization to enter into a new grant agreement with kimochi, inc, for sustainability for nonprofit licensed residential care facilities for the elderly, rcfe, during the period of march 1, 2019 through june 30, 2020, in the amount of 175,3 # will $4 plus a 10% contingency

1:11 pm
in recent years, the number of rcfes in san francisco have costed due to decreasing population, and inadequate funding. the smaller facilities have accounted for the greatest number of closures, making it difficult for lower income individuals to secure care. as mentioned earlier, there's an assisted living work group that's tasked by the long-term care coordinating council which recently researched this issue and its recommendation of support for this needed service are currently being considered by the city. this grant will support the sustainability of kimochi home rcfe by providing access, and quality care service. it's to provide care for 20 residents over the age of 60 who are able to independently
1:12 pm
walk. it is a two-story facility with eight single occupancy rooms and six double occupancy rooms. the facility is currently owned and operated by kimochi. it is currently serving a majority of residents of monolingual japanese or those who speak english as a second language. kimochi has been built from the ground up in 1983, and no major renovations have taken place since that time. the funds from this grant will be used in three areas. first is to update their safety and security measures. the second is to improve accessibility of rest rooms on the first floor and the third is to modernize the facility which is showing 3.5 decades of wear and tear.

1:14 pm
>> president serina: thank you, fanny. that was a very comprehensive report? commissioners, any comments or questions? >> is the whole kimochi home taken at this point? >> i'm just going to calling shawn for more comprehensive information? >> we currently have 17 residential residents and when we have beds available, we serve those rooms for respite care, so seniors who know they're going in for surgery or have a scheduled operation can reserve an open room so that they can stay with us for a few days before they go home and make sure they're ak and reduce the risk of hospitalization. so we're currently full with 17 residents and three residenpit residents. >> so do you have a waiting
1:15 pm
list? >> we don't have a waiting list with this right now. one of the things we'll track with this is the interest in our home and full-time residency by hopefully growing our wait list so we can fill empty beds. >> i presumed kimochi owned the building. >> yes, we do own the building. >> thank you. >> president serina: thank you, commissioner. any further comments or questions? any comments or questions from the public? hearing none, may i have a motion to approve? >> so moved. >> president serina: second? >> second. >> president serina: any further comment? thank you. all in favor? all opposed? thank you. motion carries. item g, requesting authorization to enter into a new grant agreement with self-help for the elderly for sustainability for nonprofit

1:21 pm
i think it was last updated in 2016-17, and we are in the process of updating is now. hopefully -- it now. hopefully, it'll come out later. so we -- every month we have a meeting, things change slightly sometimes, so that is the goal to be as current as possible, but it does take time to implement that information. >> and it'll be in different languages? >> oh, that is an excellent question. that is something i will look into. i don't have that information now, but that is an excellent question. i will follow up with you. >> president serina: any other general questions? any other questions from the public? any announcements? hearing none, motion to adjourn. >> so moved. >> president serina: thank you very much.

1:26 pm
opportunity to make a living by playing and listening to some of the greatest artists of all time that is what brings us to state the -- to the stage day for the press conference. the act, the chase centre and the warriors will be announcing has been a big part of the bone for many, many years. and we are set to announce today the first event ever to be held at chase centre, the wire stretch out new home right here in san francisco. -- the warriors new home in san francisco. >> not only will it be home to the six time nba champion, the golden state warriors, but it will be a local destination for some of the best acts and events in the world, and it will play host to over 200 events a year, and with activation throughout the district every single day. it will be a great centre and we
1:27 pm
will have a great time with this venue. for the first time ever, san francisco will have the opportunity to have the best talent to come and play right here in the city. >> the first person we would like to bring to the podium is the man who has a vision of building a first-class world-class entertainment and sports venue and san francisco. when he first bought the team after 2010. in 2014 they bought the property and it is the first the first privately financed, privately owned project stadium or arena to be built on privately owned land and in the country. the first time that will be done in the modern sports arena. as we mentioned, joe has always had an incredible vision for the
1:28 pm
city of san francisco and the golden state warriors, and even before purchasing this land, it was a joe who wanted to make sure if venue of this stature was built right here in the city >> by the way, today's announcement is another step in making that dream a reality, also, i do want to add on a personal note, he is a great guy and pretty cool. he told us that we are one of his favourite f.m. shows and he has been in the studio with several times over the past 30 years, and the first time we met him was when he first bought the team. he gave me a pair of tickets to the game, and he called that in as a favour to the m.c. of the event. this guy is shrewd. let's welcome joe way come. [applause] >> you said it all, i don't know what else i can say. i might as well throw these away thank you, everybody, welcome to chase centre.
1:29 pm
what i like about this is this is a practice because it is not ready for five months, you get to see most of it here today and it feels really good to see this much here today to say welcome to chase centre. i want to keep practising that line. we started this process when we bought the team and it has been seven years of looking at arenas across the country. we had another site in san francisco originally selected. we met a little opposition, and we decided to pivot, and we bought this land in mission bay. i think it was one of the greatest strokes of luck that we ever had this site is so fantastic, i thank you will all agree. it is amazing sight. you see the skyline, it is tremendous. i will tell you all so that we have done pretty well on the basketball side of things.
1:30 pm
we built a pretty good team. that has been a lot of hard work but this, i can assure you, was, and is much harder, maybe, peter guber and i like to talk about it along with rick and the rest of the staff, maybe the hardest thing that we have individually and collectively ever done. it is an amazing thing the fact that we have this thing ready to go today, and we will have a state-of-the-art complex for the first time, as you guys said in san francisco, in it maybe ever, of over 12,000 seats, a major sports entertainment venue which is really quite an accomplishment and something that will be a legacy for everyone in the city for decades to come. and a represents a transition for us as an organization. we are not just a sports team. we say that a little bit a mock because we are a pretty good sports team. we are not just a sports team anymore. all of us have realized for
1:31 pm
years, i realized today and all the work that we have spent, we are an entertainment organization. we want to be just as good at that as we have been at the sports side of things. we want to deliver world-class ask for all right here at this venue for decades to come. [applause] it is not just inside this arena but outside the sabrina. we intend to have events there day and night, all kinds of events. i am looking for three and three basketball, i don't know about you guys, i might even play, and then, of course, on the park, there will be a lot of grass there, the mayor tells me, but it will be there, and that park will be a beautiful five and a half acre park next to the arena on the water and we will have a lot of activities there as well. the activation of this site will low people away when it is
1:32 pm
finally said and done. here we are, 172 days. we are counting them down, are we not? 172 days away from our opening event at chase centre. we were are announcing what that is today and we will have announcements the rest of this week. we will have announcements in the succeeding weeks and months and we will have quite a scheduled to go. i want to close by doing something i need to do which is to think rick wells, he told me not to do this. [laughter]. [applause]. >> i'm sorry, i have to do this. he has put in an unbelievable amount of time. i don't even know, hundreds, thousands of meetings around the city and given his heart and soul to getting this arena built that is hard because he is running a business over in oakland. i also want to thank my partner who is not here today, but really is inspiration for everything we are doing here. he has tremendous entertainment genes, i want to thank him, but
1:33 pm
most of all, i want to thank some of the people in this audience who have worked tirelessly for five years on this project. it is an immense amount of work when you're running a business and running a basketball team. by the way, you are not getting paid anymore -- maybe a little more, you are running this, building this, this edifice, this whole building and everything that goes along with it, so i want to thank everyone for all their great efforts for what they put into this. thank you. with that, we will move on as you all know, a project of this stature, in order to get it done right, it takes a lot of hard work. a lot of planning and it starts at city hall. that's why i would like to introduce our 45th the mayor. she is a native of san francisco , a true san francisco mayor. a proud graduate of galileo high
1:34 pm
school. she got her masters degree at the university of san francisco. mayor london breach. [cheers and applause]. >> hello, everyone. i don't know about you, but i cannot wait until the chase center is open. this is an incredible opportunity for our city, not just because the championship warriors are going to be playing here, but because for the first time in a long time, we have a top entertainment destination in the city and county of san francisco. [applause] as we prepare for a fall opening , i want to be clear, we are working tirelessly with a number of city departments, as you know, rick, to make sure that we don't have a nightmare in the neighborhood when people are trying to get here for the concert, when they're trying to get here for the game, we are
1:35 pm
going to be ready and prepared with all of our city departments to make sure that your visitor experience to the chase center is one that will make you happy and you can be proud of. yes, it will take a lot of work, but we are committed to making sure that the chase center is successful in our city. i also want to take this time to acknowledge how much of the warriors are committed to the city and county of san francisco they didn't just set up to build the world-class chase center. they focused on becoming a part of the community. whether it is participating in our city build program and making sure that local residents have access to work at the chase center. it is making sure that small businesses and restaurants and vendors in the new chase center, it is an absolutely amazing partnership, one that i am so proud of. one that i know people will continue once the chase center is open. i'm committed to continuing an incredible working relationship with this incredible team, and
1:36 pm
we will have a good time here in san francisco. i also have one complaint. when rick wells came to me with his black hair, at one point, i said okay, rick, i will support this project when i was on the board of supervisors, but i have one request. beyoncé has to do the opening concert he will be announcing the first concert, and needless to say, unfortunately, it will not be beyoncé, but i have a commitment that eventually she will be here, and i want to make sure i am front and center here is the good news. we have an incredible local talented artist that will be headlining at the chase center. rick will make that announcement , but i have to tell you, they are just as good as beyoncé, but don't tell beyonce
1:37 pm
i said that because i still love her, thank you all so much for being here today. i am so excited about what this is going to do to make san francisco. it is already a world-class city , it is an incredible city, but this is really going to take us over the top. we are going to be a championship winning city once the warrior start bringing those rings right here to san francisco. thank you all so much and have a wonderful day. >> thank you, mayor, by the way, i want to say, i didn't realize there be so many t.v. cameras today. if i had known that, i would've started my diet four months ago. the only thing that this next gentleman has not done during his career, and it has been over 50 years in the nba, his book an opening act at the new sports and entertainment arena, but now he has done that. let's introduce the man who has
1:38 pm
done everything in his hall of fame career, the warrior president and chief operating officer, rick wells. [applause] >> what a day. every time we schedule an event around this arena, we get a day like this. mayor breed, thank you for being here today. i knew we would take a shot at beyoncé, but at least you didn't mention your favorite nba player , lebron james. [laughter] all right? >> but we do feel -- thank you for that focus. you have taken it upon yourself to make sure every city department is laser focused on successful opening for chase center, thank you for being here today, but thank you for what you were doing every day. we can't have an event that even addresses chase center without also remembering the late mayor, deadly. seven years ago, we were standing out on the 3032,
1:39 pm
accepting merely's invitation to bring the warriors back to san francisco. merely will not be with us when we cut that ribbon, but without his inspiration, without his guidance, we wouldn't be sitting here today. thank you, merely -- mayor lee. [applause] i have to give a shout out to the warriors ownership. we have some other of our ownership groups here today. there's only one word for them, it is fearless. who in the world would be crazy enough to build a world-class sports entertainment arena, privately financed, in the city of san francisco? right, nobody would do that you will not meet peter today, we got a test over the weekend with peter standing in front of the taj mahal at sunrise. i think right about now, he is approaching base camp at mount everest, so basically, it is a
1:40 pm
typical monday morning for peter guber. i want to welcome our naming rights partner. the building behind us will be known as the chase center for least the next 20 years, in your partnership is extraordinary. i want to also welcome our founding partners as well as our -- as our other partners who have made unbelievable contributions to make to -- to make today possible. a special shout out to the 1400 men and women who come to work here every day to build with their two hands. chase center under the direction of morgan and clark. it is one of the most inspiring projects to go and talk to the workers who come to work here every day who have such pride and what they have doing here. from live nation, baba real,
1:41 pm
jody goodman, and matt pretop. and i would like to thank greg and cherrie for being here, part of another plan of entertainment they will be bringing amazing events to chase center. joe talked about the process. san francisco equals process, i think they are synonymous. so there are a couple of whites we can approach it, and the direction from joe and peter was we would embrace this process, and here we are today, six months from opening chase center , and i can tell you, there are way too many people to think. thousands of people, virtually everyone in city government has touched this project, private citizens who participated in community meetings. it has been an unbelievable outpouring of help for us, a few criticisms as well. i think as is the case usually in san francisco, the result is a better project, and one we will be incredibly proud to open their three, in particular, i do
1:42 pm
need to think, first is a ucsf, our neighbor across the street. ucsf and the chancellor have been great partners and helped guide us through this process. the mission bay citizens advisory committee, our chair, they have been with us every step of the way from the very first public meeting until today and oci i, our executive director is here with us today. i think all of you may have spent more time with us than your family over the last four years, but we thank you for everything you continue to do. here we are. it is the first day of revealed week, and reveal week is going to give it just a peek at the types of acts that will be gracing chase center and our first year of operations. today's announcement must -- it is just the beginning. he was the much, much more. it will be a weekly event. beyoncé may not have made the first week, but i am guessing sometime.
1:43 pm
, in the next year, she will be making her appearance here today we're here to answer the question that we have been asked more than any other over the last few months, what will the first concert in chase center be we wanted to do something that would be unique to the bay area, something that would only happen here, and nowhere else in the world. so with that drumroll... [laughter]. >> right on cue. here we go. twenty years ago, there was a historic collaboration between two iconic forces in music. there was an album recorded over two days in berkeley right across the bay in april of 1999. that album went on to win the grammy that year for best rock instrumental performance. we are proud to announce that on friday evening, september 5th,
1:44 pm
2019, the first ever concert at chase center will be metallica and the san francisco symphony. [cheers and applause] they will reunite and perform together with a special appearance by music and music director and conductor celebrating their 20th anniversary of the grammy award-winning album, symphony and metallica, or s. and and for those of you in the know pick metallica is one of the most influential and successful bands , having sold over 125 million albums and played to millions of fans on every continent. for nearly 40 years, the band has had a special relationship

1:47 pm
[♪] [♪]
1:48 pm
[♪] >> it is way past my bedtime. we have a question and answer period with our performers for that first show. once again, let's hear it from metallica and the assistant -- and the san francisco orchestra. my question is to larsen. i have to ask you, what does it mean to play back in the bay area, and specifically here in san francisco? >> it has been obviously having been based here for 37 years, 36 years, it is great to be back
1:49 pm
and celebrating this pick the last couple of appearances we have done in the greater bay area and we have played at the ballpark down the street. i believe it has been renamed in the last couple of months, that was a couple of that was a couple two and three years ago and the year or two before that we played at the thoughts -- fox theatre in oakland. and what we love about playing at home in san francisco couple of years before that, we played at rasputin's record store in berkeley. and every day we plate someplace different. every appearance has a different flavour appeared to be part of the celebrations is obviously amazing, and the fact that san francisco finally has a world-class arena is an amazing thing, no disrespect to the palace, but where we have played many times back in its heyday, but it is nice they have a
1:50 pm
facility right here in san francisco itself. so the fact that we have been invited by the organization to be part of this opening-night is an amazing thing, and as somebody who has championed san francisco for 35 years, it makes us incredibly proud. >> it is funny you mention the cow palace and you're opening chase center with the san francisco symphony. the last time the warriors played on this side of the bay in a game of any import was actually at the cow palace when they won the world championship in the spring of 75 beating the washington bullets i am a san francisco native so i remember everything that happens in daly city. >> to larson and james, obviously you have done this before, but what is the difference in what is it like, a rock band of your reputation
1:51 pm
performing with the san francisco symphony? >> their snort -- there's more people on stage, that's for sure and there is real musicians on stage. [laughter] and we are a lot more nervous. it adds to the power, it adds to the opportunities for dynamics, for creating moods with the music, bringing people in, walls of sound, all kinds of great opportunities added by having a symphony along with you, along for the ride. it is a beautiful opportunity. we are super proud that there is still cool things like this on the horizon for us and we are still able to explore and have some fun. >> i have a question for michael mike, on the other hand, how does the symphony orchestra come from a band like metallica, how

number of places with george martin back in my london days with various bands. it is really about the wall of the sound of this, and it is very much what we hoped in a scarily creative conversation we were just having, the three of us, is to explore some questions of how the many different families of instruments that are in the orchestra, many different sounds and textures and brass, and winds, and percussion, and all of these things can be used and be used as a multilayered dialogue which is what metallica 's music is all about. >> that is a good question too because when you think of the symphony, obviously the beautiful music created by the san francisco symphony, what is your rock collection look like at home? >> i have a lot of selenite, quartz, fluorite, i was really into it when i was a teenager.

1:55 pm
was a kickoff that we are finally doing a creative project together, not just with the symphony and with the orchestra, but with michael himself, and what michael was alluding to, we have been standing backstage in the greenroom and throwing ideas at each other. the next six months we have the work cut out for us, but it will be a very special evening, and it will be a very different evening than it was in berkeley in 1999, and so that part is also really exciting. >> i am getting the wrapup sign here, so thank you to lars, james, and mike for being with us today. we look forward to seeing you and other band members, kirk, and robert, we hope to see them here. >> so do we.

the mural, the sprinklers and we didn't have any grass. it was that bad. we worked on sprinkler heads and grass and we fixed everything. we worked hard collecting everything. we had about 400 group members. every a little bit helped and now the park is busy all week. there is people with kids using the park and using strollers and now it's safer by utilizing it. >> maclaren park being the largest second park one of the best kept secrets. what's exciting about this activation in particular is that it's the first of many. it's also representation of our city coming together but not only on the bureaucratic side of things. but also our neighbors, neighbors helped this happen. we are thrilled that today we are seeing the
