Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone, Great Falls, Montana; Application and Public 
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Economic Growth Council of 
Great Falls (the Council), a quasi-public Montana Corporation, requesting 
authority to establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Great Falls, 
Montana, within the Great Falls 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 August 2, 1982. The applicant is authorized 
to make this proposal under Section 30-15-101 of the Montana Code Annotated.
   The zone is to cover 35,000 square feet within the 2000-acre Great Falls
International Airport complex. An existing 7500 square foot building will 
be made available for initial zone operations. The facility is owned by 
the applicant and will be operated by Ralph V. Sluys, a Customshouse 
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the 
Great Falls area. Prospective tenants have indicated an interest in using 
the zone for products such as warehousing, inspection, exhibition, export 
staging, and processing of chemical products, building materials, pressure 
gauges, electronic devices, and honey. 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The

public hearing on September 16, 1982, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in the City 
Commission Chambers, Civic Center Building, Central Avenue and Park Drive,
