Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Clark County, Nevada, Las Vegas Customs 
Port of Entry; Amendment of Application 
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that the State of Nevada has amended its 
application to establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in the Las 
Vegas Customs port of entry area (Docket 2-81, 46 FR 5029, 1/19/81), 
making the Nevada Development Authority (NDA), a private non-profit Nevada 
corporation, the new applicant, and changing the proposed sites for the 
facility. NDA is an economic development agency that works closely with 
State and local governments. It is financed mainly by the private sector. 
NDA is authorized to make this proposal under Nevada Revised Statues, 
273A.010-273A.050. The amended application was formally filed on October 
20, 1982. 
   The change involves a restructuring of the plan for financing and 
operating zone sites to serve the area's needs through a greater 
involvement of the private sector. The amended project will cover about 
54 acres at four sites in Las Vegas and Clark County, Nevada. 
   Site 1 involves the 23-acre Las Vegas Convention Center, located at 
Desert Inn and Paradise Roads, Clark County. Zone procedures would be 
used for international trade shows, portions of the center to be activated 
with Customs approval. Site 2 is the 100,000 square-foot Cashman Field 
convention center, located at Las Vegas Boulevard North and Washington 
Avenue, Las Vegas, that would be used in the same way. Site 3 involves 
an industrial park site covering 25 acres at Paradise and Sunset Roads, 
Clark County. Space will be available for a variety of processing and 
distribution operations and for firms requiring separate facilities. Site 
4 is a multi-user public warehouse, located at Sunset and Bermuda Roads, 
Clark County. The facility will offer 120,000 square feet for initial 
general-purpose zone activity. 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the amended 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; 
Max G. Willis, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, 
300 South Ferry Street, San Pedro, California 90731; and Colonel Paul W. 
Taylor, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Los Angeles, P.O. 
Box 2711, Los Angeles, California 90053. 
   Comments concerning the amended application 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 November 30, 1982.
