Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Sparks, NV Within the Reno Customs Port of 
Entry; Application and Public Hearing 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) by the Nevada Development Authority, a Nevada non-profit corporation 
and grantee of FTZ 89, Las Vegas, requesting authority to establish a 
general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Sparks, Nevada, within the Reno 
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 August 2, 1985. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under 
section 237A.030 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. 
   The proposed foreign-trade zone will involve a 24-acre site on Spice 
Island Drive near the Reno International Airport, to be operated by the 
Nevada International Trade Corporation, an affiliate of the Economic 
Development Authority of Western Nevada. Zone warehousing services will be 
provided by Dermody Properties, Inc., a warehousing firm and developer 
that owns the site.  
   The application contains evidence on the need for zone services in the 
Reno area. A number of firms have indicated an interest in using zone 
procedures for storage and manipulation of products such as energy 
equipment, paper, semi-conductor components, computer and other electronic 
equipment, skis and gaming equipment. No specific manufacturing approvals 
are being sought 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: John J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, Foreign-
Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; Paul 
R. Andrews, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, 555 
Battery St., San Francisco, CA 94111; and Colonel Wayne J. Scholl, 
District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Sacramento, 650 Capitol 
Mall, Sacramento, CA 95814.  
   As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public
hearing on September 11, 1985, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in Washoe County 
Commission Chambers, 1205 Mill St., Reno NV 89502. 
   Interested parties are invited to present their views at the hearing. 
Persons wishing to testify should notify the Board's Executive Secretary 
in writing at the address below or by phone (202/377-2862) by September 3. 
Instead of an oral presentation, written statements may be submitted in 
accordance with the Board's regulations to the examiners committee, care 
of the Executive Secretary, at any time from the date of this notice
