Foreign-Trade Zone 2 -- New Orleans, LA; Application for Expansion  
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Board of Commissioners of the Port of New Orleans (the 
Port), grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 2, requesting authority to expand its 
zone to include an industrial park site in New Orleans, within the New 
Orleans 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 30, 1985.  
 
   On July 16, 1946, the Port received authority from the Board to 
establish a foreign-trade zone in New Orleans (Board Order 12, 11 FR 8235, 
7/31/46). In 1984 the Board authorized a new 76-acre site within the 
Almonaster-Michoud Industrial District on the Inner Harbor Navigation 
Canal and the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (Board Order 245, 49 FR 15006, 
4/16/84). 
 
   The Port is now requesting an industrial park site for large scale users
that cannot be accommodated at the approved facilities. The proposed 
expansion site involves the 700-acre Newport Industrial Park, adjacent to 
the Almonaster-Michoud Industrial District on the Mississippi River Gulf 
Outlet at Bayou Bienvenue in New Orleans. 
 
   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; Joel Mish, 
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, South Central Region, 423 Canal 
St., New Orleans, LA 70130; and Colonel Eugene S. Witherspoon, District 
Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District New Orleans, P.O. Box 60267, New 
Orleans, LA 70160.  
 
   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 November 11, 1985.
