Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the EDC, Inc., the 
Economic Development Council for the Peoria Area for a Foreign-Trade Zone 
and Subzone in the Peoria, IL Customs Port of Entry Area 
 
TEXT: Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C.  
 
 
Resolution and Order 
 
   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June
18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has
adopted the following Resolution and Order: 
 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
 
 
 
   After consideration of the application of the EDC Inc., the Economic 
Development Council for the Peoria Area, a non-profit Illinois corporation 
affiliated with the Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce, filed with the 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on May 21, 1984, requesting a grant 
of authority for establishing, operating, and maintaining a general-purpose 
foreign-trade zone in the Peoria, Illinois area, and a special-purpose 
subzone for Caterpillar Tractor Company plants in the Peoria area, adjacent
to the Peoria Customs port of entry, the Board, finding that the 
requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's 
regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal is in the public interest,
approves the application.  
 
   As the proposal involves open space on which buildings may be 
constructed by parties other than the grantee, this approval includes 
authority to the grantee to permit the erection of such buildings, pursuant
to Section 400.815 of the Board's regulations, as are necessary to carry 
out the zone proposal, providing that prior to its granting such permission
it shall have the concurrences of the local District Director of Customs, 
the U.S. Army District Engineer, when appropriate, and the Board's 
Executive Secretary. Further, the grantee shall notify the Board's 
Executive Secretary for approval prior to the commencement of any 
manufacturing operation within the general-purpose zone and any new 
manufacturing within the subzone. The FTZ Staff shall monitor the subzone 
operations to insure that zone procedures do not create imports that would 
otherwise not have occurred. The Secretary of Commerce, as Chairman and 
Executive Officer of the Board, is hereby authorized to issue a grant of 
authority and appropriate Board Order. 
 
 
Grant To Establish, Operate, and Maintain a Foreign-Trade Zone and Subzone 
in the Peoria, Illinois Area 
 
   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To 
provide for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of foreign-trade 
zones in ports of entry of the United States, to expedite and encourage 
foreign commerce, and for other purposes," as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) 
(the Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized and 
empowered to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, 
operating, and maintaining foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to ports of 
entry under the jurisdiction of the United States;  
 
   Whereas, the EDC, Inc., the Economic Development Council for the Peoria 
Area (the Grantee), a non-profit Illinois corporation affiliated with the 
Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce, has made application (filed May 21, 1984, 
Docket 29-84, 49 FR 22842) in due and proper form to the Board, requesting 
the establishment, operation, and maintenance of a foreign-trade zone at 
sites in and near Peoria, Illinois, and a special-purpose subzone for the 
manufacturing and distribution facilities of Caterpillar Tractor Company in 
the Peoria area, adjacent to the Peoria Customs port of entry; 
 
   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard;  
 
   Whereas, the Board notes that, in approving zones and subzones, it 
retains authority to restrict or prohibit activity found to be detrimental 
to the public interest after the operation is underway; and, 
 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400) are satisfied; 
 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege of 
establishing, operating, and maintaining a foreign-trade zone and subzone, 
designated on the records of the Board as Zone No. 114 and Subzone No. 114A 
at the locations mentioned above and more particularly described on the maps
and drawings accompanying the application in Exhibits IX and X, subject to 
the provisions, conditions, and restrictions of the Act and the regulations 
issued thereunder, to the same extent as though the same were fully set 
forth herein, and also to the following express conditions and limitations:
 
   Activation of the foreign-trade zone and subzone shall be commenced by 
the Grantee within a reasonable time from the date of issuance of the 
grant, and prior thereto the Grantee shall obtain all necessary permits 
from Federal, State, and municipal authorities. 
 
   The Grantee shall allow officers and employees of the United States free
and unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade zone and 
subzone sites in the performance of their official duties. 
 
   The Grantee shall notify the Executive Secretary of the Board for 
approval prior to the commencement of any manufacturing operations within 
the general-purpose zone, and any new manufacturing within the subzone.  
 
   Subzone operations will be monitored by the FTZ Staff to determine their
economic effects. 
 
   The grant shall not be construed to relieve the Grantee from liability 
for injury or damage to the person or property of others occasioned by the 
construction, operation, or maintenance of said zone or subzone, and in no 
event shall the United States be liable therefor. 
 
   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District 
Director of Customs and the Army District Engineer with the Grantee 
regarding compliance with their respective requirements for the protection 
of the revenue of the United States and the installation of suitable 
facilities.  
 
   In witness whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name 
to be signed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and 
Executive Officer at Washington, D.C. this 21st day of December, 1984 
pursuant to Order of the Board. 
 
 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
