Foreign-Trade Zone 8, Toledo, Ohio; Application for Expansion
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, grantee of Foreign-
Trade Zone 8 in Toledo, requesting authority to expand the zone in Toledo's
port area, within the Toledo 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 March 9, 1984. The applicant is authorized
to make this proposal under Section 4582.06(f) of the Revised Code of Ohio.
On October 11, 1960, the Board authorized the Port Authority to establish
a foreign-trade zone in the Toledo area (Board Order 51, 25 FR 9909,
10/15/60). The project currently involves a 135,000 square foot warehouse
within Port Authority Facility No. 1, also called the Overseas Cargo Center.
The Center covers 150 acres at 3322 St. Lawrence Drive, Toledo, near the
mouth of the Maumee River at the western end of Lake Erie.
The Port Authority is now requesting authority to expand its zone to
include the entire Port Authority Facility No. 1. This would allow potential
zone users to be located throughout the complex. Several firms have
expressed an interest in using zone procedures in the expansion area for
operations that connot be accommodated in the existing zone area. Specific
manufacturing approvals are not being requested at this time. Such requests
would be made to the Board on a case by case basis.
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, John F. Nelson,
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North Central Region, 55 Erieview
Plaza, 6th Floor, Cleveland, OH 44114; and Colonel Robert R. Hardiman,
District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Buffalo, 1776 Niagara St.,
Buffalo, NY 14207.
Comments concerning the proposed 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
April 20, 1984.
A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
the following locations:
