Resolution and Order Approving the Application of Partners for Economic 
Progress, Inc., for a Foreign-Trade Zone in Chattanooga, TN  
 
TEXT: 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 has adopted the following Resolution and Order:  
 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
 
   After consideration of the application of Partners for Economic Progress,
Inc., a Tennessee non-profit economic development corporation, filed with 
the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on September 25, 1985, requesting
a grant of authority for establishing, operating and maintaining a general-
purpose foreign-trade zone in Chattanooga, Tennessee, within the Chattanooga
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 pblic 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
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 
Chattanooga, Tennessee 
 
   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 Partners for Economic Progress, Inc. (the Grantee), a 
Tennessee non-profit corporation, has made application (filed September 25,
1985, Docket No. 34-85, 50 FR 40884) in due and proper form to the Board, 
requesting the establishment, operation, and maintenance of a foreign-trade
zone in Chattanooga, Tennessee, within the Chattanooga 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. 134 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: 
 
   Operation 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 grant does not include authority for manufacturing operations, and 
the Grantee shall notify 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 witnesses 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 30th day of January 1987, pursuant to 
Order of the Board. 
 
 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
