ExEcutivE SummARy
Ramsey County and the Minnesota Vikings organization haveproposed a new stadium to be built at the site o the ormer TwinCities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP) in Arden Hills. In August 2011, Governor Mark Dayton requested the Metropolitan Counciland the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission (MSFC)to evaluate the stadium proposal to determine:
 The potential risks, i any, o State participation in the StadiumProposal and necessary regional transportation improvements, and
Potential ways to mitigate or eliminate any resulting exposure tothe public. This report presents the results o that evaluation. It includesinormation rom several sources, including the consulting rm o Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc., the Metropolitan Council, theMSFC, Ramsey County, the Minnesota Vikings, the Minnesota Department o Transportation, the City o Arden Hills, the City o Shoreview, the City o Mounds View, the City o New Brighton, theCity o Blaine, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, U.S.General Services Administration, the U.S. Army, the Minnesota National Guard, and others.

Within thisproperty, the stadium, parking areas, support acilities, andcirculation roadways would be built on approximately 260 acres (theStadium Parcel). The remaining 170 acres (Development Parcel) would be reserved or uture residential and commercial development. The 430-acre Stadium Proposal Property would be acquired by Ramsey County rom the U.S. Army through the ederal GeneralServices Administration (GSA).
