                               [Docket No. 8-82] 
                                   47 FR 8392 
                               February 26, 1982 
Foreign-Trade Zone 57, Mecklenburg County, North Carolina; Application for 
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the North Carolina Department of 
Commerce (NCDC), a State public agency and grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 57 
in the Charlotte Customs port of entry area, requesting authority to 
expand the zone to include an industrial park site. 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 February 18, 1982. The applicant is 
authorized to make this proposal under Chapter 55-C of the General 
Statutues of North Carolina.   

   On April 28, 1980, NCDC received authority from the Board to establish 
a foreign-trade zone project at two sites in the Charlotte area (Board 
Order 156, 45 FR 30466, 5-8-80). Site I is a 100,000 square foot warehouse 
at 11425 Granite Street in Mecklenburg County. Site II involves a nearby 
123,000 square foot warehouse at 14620 Carowinds Boulevard, also in 
Mecklenburg County. The project became operational in June 1980, and in 
its first full fiscal year of operation (F.Y. 1981), it served 36 firms 
and received some $500,000 in merchandise. Projections for the current 
fiscal year indicate the zone will serve 100 firms and receive a million 
dollars in merchandise. Zone operations are currently limited to 
warehousing, distribution, and light processing operations.  
   Based on a growing demand for zone space by firms requiring separate 
facilities for manufacturing and processing, the applicant requests zone 
status for an industrial park site covering 85 acres within the Arrowood 
industrial development project on Carowinds Boulevard at the intersection 
of Route 49 in Mecklenburg County (Site III). This facility will provide 
space for operations which cannot be accommodated at Sites I and II, and 
standby space for future zone development. Distribution Technology, Inc., 
which operates Sites I and II, will also operate the proposed site as an 
integral part of the overall zone project. 
   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; Charles 
W. Winwood, Director (Inspection and Control), U.S. Customs Service, 
Region IV, 99 S.E. 5th Street, Miami, Florida 33131; and Colonel Robert 
A. Hughes, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District, Wilmington, 
P.O. Box 1890, Wilmington, North Carolina 29402.  
   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 March 31, 1982.
