Foreign-Trade Zone 89, Las Vegas, NV: Application for Expansion  
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Nevada Development Authority (NDA), grantee of Foreign-
Trade Zone 89, requesting authority to expand the zone to include four 
additional sites totalling 903 acres in the Las Vegas area, within the Las
Vegas 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 December 11, 1987.  
 
   The Las Vegas zone was approved in November 1983, and comprises four 
sites (53 acres) in Las Vegas and Clark County, Nevada. The requested 
expansion would involve four additional sites, totalling 903 acres, in the
Las Vegas area: (a) Hughes Airport Center (292 acres), bounded by Paradise
Road, White Drive, Chaparral Road, Pilot Road and Gilespie Road, (b) Whitney
Mesa Business Center (38 acres), Sunset Road and Ramrod Street, (c) North 
Las Vegas Business Center (37 acres), Craig Road and North 5th Street, and
(d) AMPAC Development Company Business Park (536 acres), Gibson Road. 
 
   The additional sites are being requested to provide a broader range of 
facilities for prospective zone users. The Board will consider whether the
number of separate sites being requested is needed to serve the public 
interest.  
 
   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: Joseph Lowry (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones Staff,
U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; John Heinrich, District
Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, 300 South Ferry Street, 
Terminal Island, San Pedro, California 90731; and Colonel Tadahiko Ono,
District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Los Angeles, P.O. Box 2711,
Los Angeles, California 90053-2325. 
 
   Comments concerning the proposed expansion are invited in writing from 
interested parties. They should be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or before February 1, 1988.
