Foreign-Trade Zone 19, Omaha, Nebraska; Application for Expansion
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (FTZ Board) by the Dock Board of the City of
Omaha, Nebraska, a municipal public corporation and grantee of Foreign-
Trade Zone 19, requesting authority to expand its zone project to include
an industrial park site in Omaha, within the Omaha 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 FTZ Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on April 15, 1982.
The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under Section 21-20.145
of the Statutes of the State of Nebraska.
In 1975, the Dock Board received authority from the FTZ Board to
establish a zone project in Omaha (Board Order 104, 40 FR 4496, 1-30-75) at
the Omaha Municipal Dock, 701 Abbott Drive. During the past fiscal year,
the facility received over $200,000 in merchandise. An industrial park
site was contemplated for a future proposal as demand for such zone
The applicant now requests zone status for 38 acres (Lots 5, 8, 10,
and 16) within the 270-acre Riverfront Industrial Park. Located at Abbott
Drive and Crown Point Avenue, the site is adjacent to Eppley Airfield and
within 4 miles of the existing zone. It will be utilized by firms
interested in using zone procedures for operations which cannot be
accommodated at the existing facility and for standby space for future zone
development. SCNO Terminal Corporation, which operates the zone at the
municipal dock, will also operate the proposed industrial park site.
In accordance with the FTZ Board's regulations, and 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; Donald
E. White, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Region IX, 610 South

Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Omaha, 6014 U.S.P.O. and Courthouse,
215 N. 17th Street, Omaha, Nebraska 68102.
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 May 20, 1982.
