Development Council for a Foreign-Trade Zone in Cowlitz County, WA  
 
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 USC 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 Cowlitz Economic 
Development Council, a Washington non-profit corporation, filed with the 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on July 10, 1984, requesting a grant 
of authority for establishing, operating, and maintaining a general-purpose
foreign-trade zone in Cowlitz County, Washington, within the Longview 
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 
applicaiton. 
 
   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 zone. 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 in Cowlitz 
County, WA 
 
   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 USC 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 Cowlitz Economic Development Council (the Grantee), a 
Washington non-profit corporation, has made application (filed July 10, 
1984, Docket No. 34-84, 49 FR 29116) in due and proper form to the Board, 
requesting the establishment, operation, and maintenance of a foreign-trade
zone at sites in Cowlitz County, Washington, within the Longview 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; 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, designated on
the records of the Board as Zone No. 120 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 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 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 zone.  
 
   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, 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 18th day of July 1985, pursuant to Order 
of the Board.
