The construction of a global network of detectors is the cornerstone to scientific success for 3rd generation gravitational wave astronomy. If carried out with a vision to the future, the third generation implementation, in its infrastructure, technology base and governance can provide the point of departure for subsequent developments beyond the third generation, a path to the long and revolutionary future of gravitational wave astrophysics. The goal of this document is to lay out…
