Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Sierra Vista, AZ (Naco Customs Port of
Entry); Application and Public Hearing
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Sierra Vista Economic Development Foundation, Inc.
(SVEDF), an Arizona non-profit corporation, requesting authority to
establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Sierra Vista, Arizona,
adjacent to the Naco 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 July 15, 1986. The applicant is authorized to make this
proposal under Chapter 18, Title 44, Arizona Revised Statutes.
The proposed foreign-trade zone involves a 13.4-acre site off State
Highway 90 within the Bella Vista Industrial Park in Sierra Vista. The
SVEDF will develop and operate the zone facility.
The application indicates that several area firms have indicated an
interest in using zone procedures for the storage/distribution of
electronic components and assemblies, communication equipment, bicycle
components, auto accessories, furniture and blinds. No manufacturing
approvals are being sought at this time. Such requests would be made to
the Board on a case-by-case basis.

been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The
committee consists of: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones
