Foundation, Inc. for a Foreign-Trade Zone in Sierra Vista, AZ, Adjacent to 
the NACO Customs Port of Entry 
 
TEXT: Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC.  
 
 
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 through 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 Sierra Vista Economic 
Development Foundation, Inc., an Arizona non-profit corporation, filed with
the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on July 15, 1986, requesting a 
grant of authority for establishing, operating, and maintaining a general-
purpose foreign-trade zone in Sierra Vista, Arizona, adjacent to the NACO
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 
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 @ 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 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 Sierra
Vista, Arizona 
 
   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 through 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 Sierra Vista Economic Development Foundation, Inc. (the 
Grantee), an Arizona non-profit corporation, has made application (filed 
July 15, 1986, Docket No. 26-86, 51 FR 27435) in due and proper form to the
Board, requesting the establishment, operation, and maintenance of a 
foreign-trade zone in Sierra Vista, Arizona, adjacent to the Naco 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. 139 at the location 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 site 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 or assembly 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 DC, this 13th day of March 1987, pursuant to Order of
the Board.
