Attached below are PDFs of the current Grand Rounds Missing Link report.
First is the full report, as formatted to produce a booklet. It is 98 pages. Second is an abridged version, with blank and acknowledgment pages removed, for printing at home. It is still 70 pages, with many color maps and illustrations. The third file contains 22 pages excerpted from the full report, focused on the Audubon Park segment, including Stinson Parkway.
An ANA volunteer created the two smaller versions to make it easier for more people access the information. Those with strong concerns and/or high curiosity are advised to review the full report as delivered by the Park Board and its consultants.
Today the nationally-recognized Grand Rounds is the only designated all-urban Scenic Byway in the United States. Over a century old, the Grand Rounds encompasses more than 50 miles of parkways, bicycle and pedestrian paths, green space and various year round park amenities in Minneapolis, and attracts over 14 million visits each year.
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) has scheduled three public hearings in June and July on the proposed Grand Rounds "Missing Link" route recommendation. The public hearings will provide an opportunity for the public to comment on the route that was recommended to the MPRB by the 21-member Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC).
The public hearings will be held:
Final board action on the recommended route is expected this summer. The chosen location will result in the development of a Master Plan for the completion of the Missing Link. Implementation will begin as funds become available.
