Foreign-Trade Zone 86, Tacoma, WA; Application for Expansion
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Puget Sound Foreign-Trade Zone Association (PSFTZ),
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 86 in Tacoma, requesting authority to expand
its zone at the Port of Tacoma, within the Tacoma Customs port of entry.
The application was submitted pursusant to the provisions of the Foreign-
Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 USC 81a-82u), and the regulations of the
Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on September 10, 1984. The
applicant is authorized to make this proposal under Section 24.46.020 of
the Revised Code of Washington.
On July 20, 1983, the Board authorized PSFTZ to establish a foreign-
trade zone in the Tacoma port of entry (Board Order 216, 48 FR 34794,
8/1/83). The zone currently involves 15.9 acres within the 2100 Port of
Tacoma, a deepwater port terminal and industrial park complex.
PSFTZ is now requesting authority to expand its zone to include an
additional 622 acres in the Port of Tacoma. The additional acreage involves
the portions of the Port's Industrial Development District which have the
most potential for zone development. It will allow PSFTZ to offer zone
services to the prospective users which cannot be accommodated at the
existing zone site. Among the prospective users is an automobile processing
and accessorization operation, which will use 54 acres in the new area.
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; Robert Hardy,
District Director, U.S. Customs Services, Pacific Region, 2039 Federal
Office Bldg., 909 First Av., Seattle, WA 98174; and Colonel Roger F.
Yankoupe, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Seattle, P.O.
Box C-3755, Seattle, WA 98124.
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 October 26, 1984.
A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
