Foreign-Trade Zone 22, Chicago, IL; Application for Expansion  
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Illinois International Port District (Port District),
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 22, requesting authority to expand the zone 
to include 2 sites in the Joliet/Will County, Illinois area, adjacent to the
Chicago 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 October 26, 1987.  
   Foreign-Trade Zone 22, approved in 1975, currently consists of 603 acres
at 3 sites. Site 1, in the Lake Calumet area, is composed of 20 acres. Site
2, at O'Hare Airport, comprises 225,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space. Site 3,
in Manteno Township, Kankakee County, is an industrial park area of some 
578 acres.

totalling 49 acres. Site A (34 acres) is located at 143rd St. and Van Dyke 
Rd., Plainfield, Illinois. Site B consists of two parcels at McDonough St.
in Joliet. Parcel 1 (5 acres) is located at 1408 McDonough St., and parcel 
2 (10 acres) adjoins this site. Both sites would be operated by the Joliet 
Regional Port District. No approvals for manufacturing are sought in this 
application. Such requests would be reviewed by the Board on a case by case
