Foreign-Trade Zone 31, Granite City, Illinois; Application for Extension of 
Zone Status at Temporary Site 
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Tri-City Regional Port District (Tri-City), grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone 31, requesting an extension of zone status for its 
foreign-trade zone site on South State Street in Granite City, Illinois, 
within the St. Louis 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 September 26, 1983. The applicant is authorized to 
make this proposal under Section 1, Illinois P. A. 79-613. 
 
   Foreign-Trade Zone 31 was authorized by the Board on September 6, 1977 
(Board Order 122, 42 FR 46568, 9/16/77) for a 47-acre site within the 
127-acre Tri-City Industrial Center on the western limits of Granite City, 
Illinois, adjacent to the Chain of Rocks Canal on the Mississippi. 
 
   On November 21, 1980, the Board authorized Tri-City to temporarily 
expand its zone to include an existing 95,000 square foot warehouse 
(Tri-City Grocery Warehouse) located at 1630 South State Street in Granite 
City (Board Order 169, 45 FR 79520, 12/1/80). This site was requested so 
that Tri-City could begin providing zone warehousing services until a 
planned permanent warehouse became available at the canal site. Zone 
status for the temporary site expires on December 31, 1983. 
 
   Because the South State Street site has proved to be an effective means 
of providing warehousing services, Tri-City has requested that the time 
limitation be removed. The grantee intends to extend its operating contract 
with Fox Industries, owner and operator of the warehouse. 
 
   Comments concerning the proposal 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 October 28, 1983.
A report with recommendations for the Board will be prepared by the FTZ 
Staff.  
 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of 
the following locations:
