Foreign-Trade Zone 51, Duluth, Minnesota; Application for Expansion  

TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Seaway Port Authority of 
Duluth (the Port Authority), grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 51, requesting 
authority to expand its zone to include an industrial park site in Duluth, 
Minnesota, within the Duluth Customs port of entry. The application was 
submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as 
amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR 
Part 400). It was formally filed on December 2, 1981. The applicant is 
authorized to make this proposal under Section 2, Chapter 270, Laws of 
Minnesota 1976. 

   On November 27, 1979, the Port Authority received authority from the 
Board to establish a foreign-trade zone project (Board Order 149, 44 FR 
70508, 12/7/79). The facility is located on a 1.3-acre parcel with an 
11,000 square foot building within the Arthur M. Clure Public Marine 
Terminal in Duluth.  

   So that it can serve operations with large space requirements and 
firms requiring their own facilities, the Port Authority now requests 
the addition of an industrial park site as part of its zone project. The 
proposed facility covers 29 acres at Enterprise Circle and Airpark 
Boulevard within the 120-acre Airpark Industrial Park, Duluth, adjacent 
to the Duluth International Airport. A number of firms have recently 
expressed an interest in using zone procedures at Airpark for storage, 
light processing and assembly of electronic products and medical 
equipment and supplies. 

   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an Examiners Committee 
has been appointed to investigate the application and report to the 
Board. The committee consists of Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-
Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 20230; 
Robert W. Nordness, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Region IX, 
209 Federal Building, Duluth, Minnesota 55802; and Colonel Robert V. 
Vermillion, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Detroit, 
P.O. Box 1027, Detroit, Michigan 48231.  

   Comments concerning the proposed zone expansion are invited in 
writing from interested persons and organizations. They should be 
addressed to the Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and 
postmarked on or before January 8, 1982. 

   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each 
of the following locations: 

U.S. Customs District Office, 
209 Federal Building,
