Foreign-Trade Zone 5, Seattle, WA; Application for Expansion  
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Port of Seattle Commission (PSC), grantee of FTZ 5, 
requesting authority to expand the zone to include two additional sites in 
Seattle, within the Seattle 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 February 9, 1988. 
   The Seattle zone was approved in June 1949, and currently is located at
PSC warehouse facilities (67,000 sq. ft.) within the port complex. The 
requested change would add several parcels of port and state owned property,
totalling 1,396 acres at two sites. Site 1 (960 acres) is located at the 
seaport and includes a variety of port facilities, one being the existing
zone site. Site 2 (436 acres) is an industrial/commercial site located at
the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. 
   The proposed sites are being requested to enable PSC to expand and 
improve zone services for prospective users. No requests for manufacturing
approvals are being sought at this time. They would be made to the Board on
a case-by-case basis. 
   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 E. Lowry (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones Staff,
U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; Daniel C. Holland, 
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, 2039 Federal 
Office Building, 909 First Avenue, Seattle, Washington 98174; and Colonel
Phillip L. Hall, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Seattle, 
P.O. Box C-3755, Seattle, Washington 98124-2255. 
   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 March 31, 1988.
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
the following locations:
