Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone, Huntsville, Alabama; Application and Public 
Hearing  
 
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Huntsville-Madison County 
Airport Authority (the Airport Authority), an Alabama public corporation, 
requesting authority to establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in 
Huntsville, within the Huntsville 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 C.F.R. 
Part 400). It was formally filed on July 30, 1982. The applicant is 
authorized to make this proposal under Act No. 498, House Bill 1158, 
Bound Acts of Alabama, 1977.  
 
   The proposed foreign-trade zone will cover 4 sites totaling 1300 acres 
within the 3,000-acre Huntsville-Madison County Airport and industrial 
complex. The facility is owned and will be operated by the Airport 
Authority. An existing 50,000 square foot warehouse is available for 
initial zone operations. Space is also available for firms requiring 
separate facilities. 
 
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the 
Huntsville area. A number of prospective tenants have indicated an interest 
in using the zone for warehousing, distribution, processing, and 
manufacturing of products such as bauxite, machinery and parts, foundry 
components, valve parts, gear boxes, bearings, electronic components and 
products, and components for televisions, telephones, and computers. At 
the outset, only non-manufacturing operations are involved. Specific 
manufacturing approvals are not being sought at this time, with requests 
to be made in the future on a case-by-case basis.  
 
   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; Harvey 
L. Perry, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Region V, 250 N. Water 
Street, Mobile, Alabama 36601; and Colonel Patrick J. Kelly, District 
Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Mobile, P.O. Box 2288, Mobile, 
Alabama 36628. 
 
   As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a 
public hearing on September 8, 1982, beginning at 10:00 a.m., in the 
Madision Room of the Sky Center Hotel, Huntsville-Madison County Airport, 
Huntsville. The purpose of the hearing is to help inform interested 
persons about the proposal, to provide an opportunity for their expression 
of views, and to obtain information useful to the examiners. 
 
   Interested parties are invited to present their views at the hearing. 
They should notify the Board's Executive Secretary of their desire to be 
heard in writing at the address below or by phone (202/377-2862) by 
September 1, 1982. Instead of an oral presentation, written statements may 
be submitted in accordance with the Board's regulations to the examiners 
committee, care of the Executive Secretary, at any time from the date of 
this notice through October 8, 1982. Evidence submitted during the 
post-hearing period is not desired unless it is clearly shown that the
matter is new and material and that there are good reasons why it could 
not be presented at the hearing. A copy of the application and 
accompanying exhibits will be available during this time for public 
inspection at each of the following locations:
