Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Dayton, Ohio; Application and Public Hearing  
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Greater Dayton Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., a non-profit 
Ohio corporation affiliated with the City of Dayton, Montgomery County and 
the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce, requesting authority to establish a 
general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Dayton, Ohio, within the Dayton 
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 May 24, 1983. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under 
Section 1743.11 of the Ohio Revised Code.  
   The proposed zone will cover 452 acres at the Dayton International 
Airport, a city-owned commercial, industrial and transportation complex 
totalling some 3200 acres. A 52,000 square foot general-purpose building, 
currently under construction at 10300 Freight Drive, will be used for 
initial zone activity. Steve Ellis Realty has been designated as zone 
developer and operator.  
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone procedures in the 
Dayton area. A number of firms have indicated an interest in using the zone 
for warehousing/distribution, inspection and repair of products, such as 
machinery and tooling, welding system components, vehicle components, 
appliances, heaters, gaskets, rope, laboratory equipment, instruments, 
electronic components and equipment, switches, medical products and sugar.
   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: John J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C.

Box 59, Louisville, KY 40201.  
   As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public 
hearing on June 28, 1983, beginning at 8:30 A.M., in Conference Room A of 
the Dayton Marriott Hotel, 1414 South Patterson Blvd., Dayton, Ohio.
