TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the County of Niagara, New York
(the County), grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 34, requesting authority to
relocate the project within the County to a site at the Niagara Falls
International Airport, within the Buffalo/Niagara Falls Customs port of

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
January 12, 1982. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under
Chapter 190 of the 1977 Session Laws of New York (approved June 1, 1977).
On November 29, 1977, the County received authority from the Board to
establish a foreign-trade zone project within the Lew-Port Industrial Park,
Township of Porter (Board Order 125, 42 FR 33379, 6/3/77). For various
reasons the County has decided to reorganize and relocate the project.
The applicant now requests authority to relocate the zone to a 19-acre
site within a multi-purpose industrial development project at the Niagara
Falls International Airport in the Town of Wheatfield. A 30,000 square
foot multi-user building will be constructed by the County for initial
zone activity. The zone project will continue to be a part of the Niagara
County Overall Economic Development Program Committee's efforts to
diversify the area's economy and reduce unemployment.
In accordance with the Board's regulations, an Examiners Committee has
been appointed to investigate the application and report thereon to the
Board. The committee consists of Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-
