State of New York, for a Foreign-Trade Zone at Two Sites in Clinton County

Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C.  

Resolution and Order 

   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zone Board 
has adopted the following Resolution and Order: 

   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  

   After consideration of the application of Clinton County, New York, 
filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on September 6, 1979, 
requesting a grant of authority for establishing, operating, and 
maintaining a general-purpose foreign-trade zone within the County, 
adjacent to the Champlain-Rouses Point Customs port of entry, the Board, 
finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended, 
and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal is in the 
public interest, approves the application. 

   As the proposal includes industrial park and open space on which 
buildings may be constructed by parties other than the grantee, this 
approval includes authority to the grantee to permit the erection of such 
buildings, pursuant to Section 400.815 of the Board's regulations, as are 
necessary to carry out the zone proposal, providing that prior to its 
granting such permission it shall have the concurrences of the local 
District Director of Customs, the U.S. Army District Engineer, when 
appropriate, and the Board's Executive Secretary. Further, the grantee 
shall notify the Board's Executive Secretary for approval prior to the 
commencement of any manufacturing operation within either zone site. The 
Secretary of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive Officer of the Board, is 
hereby authorized to issue a grant of authority and appropriate Board Order.
