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 Greater Cincinnati 
Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 46, filed with the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board (the Board) on July 17, 1987, requesting special-purpose 
subzone status for non-manufacturing operations at the Eastwood Complex of 
U.S. Shoe Corporation in Cincinnati, Ohio, within the Cincinnati 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 with 
regard to that part of the application requesting subzone status for the 
storage and distribution facilities (24 acres) within the complex, and that 
this part of the proposal is in the public interest, approves that part of 
the application.  
 
   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.  
 
 
FOREIGN-TRADE ZONES BOARD, WASHINGTON, DC 
 
   Grant of Authority to Establish a Foreign-Trade Subzone at the U.S. Shoe
Plant in Cincinnati, Ohio 
 
   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 Board's regulations (15 CFR 400.304) provide for the 
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities 
cannot serve the specific use involved, and where a significant public 
benefit will result; 
 
   Whereas, the Greater Cincinnati Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone 46, has made application (filed July 17, 1987, 52 FR 
29714) in due and proper form to the Board for authority to establish a 
special-purpose subzone at the storage and distribution facilities of U.S. 
Shoe Corporation at its Eastwood Complex in Cincinnati, Ohio, within the 
Cincinnati 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 are satisfied; 
 
   Now, Therefore, in accordance with the application filed July 17, 1987, 
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone, at the storage 
and distribution facilities of U.S. Shoe Corporation in Cincinnati, Ohio, 
designated on the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 46E at 
the location mentioned above and more particularly described on the maps 
and drawings accompanying the application, said grant of authority being 
subject to the provisions and restrictions of the Act and the Regulations 
issued thereunder, and to the limitations described in the resolution 
accompanying this action, and also to the following express conditions and 
limitations:  
 
   Activation of the subzone shall be commenced within a reasonable time 
from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior thereto, any necessary 
permits shall be obtained from Federal, State, and municipal authorities.  
 
   Officers and employees of the United States shall have free and 
unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade subzone in the 
performance of their official duties. 
 
   The grant shall not be construed to relieve responsible parties from 
liability for injury or damage to the person or property of others 
occasioned by the construction, operation, or maintenance of said subzone, 
and in no event shall the United States be liable therefore. 
 
   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District 
Director of Customs and District Army 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 or his delegate at Washington, DC, this 14th day of 
December 1988, pursuant to Order of the Board.
