Foreign-Trade Zone 136 -- Brevard County, Florida Application for Expansion
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Canaveral Port Authority, grantee of FTZ 136, requesting
authority to expand its zone in Brevard County, Florida. The application
was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as
amended (19 USC 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part
400). It was formally filed on October 27, 1989.
FTZ 136 was approved by the Board on March 16, 1987 (Board Order 349, 52
FR 9904, 3/27/87). It currently consists of a 45-acre site within the Port
Authority's 908-acre port terminal complex, and a 2-acre temporary site at
the nearby Spaceport Florida Industrial Park in Titusville.
The change involves expanding the existing zone to include the entire
908-acre port complex, and adding two publicly-owned industrial park sites
within Brevard County: The Titusville-Cocoa Space Center Executive Airport
(TICO Airport) industrial park (1,372 acres) in Titusville (including the
Spaceport Florida, a new complex for private high technology space
operations); and the Melbourne Regional Airport industrial park (1,853
acres) in Melbourne. The application indicates that the expansion will
provide facilities needed to accommodate the area's distribution/processing
operations, especially for activity related to the commercialization of
space. (Items of a commercial nature that comprise a space payload are
considered exported at the time of launch.)
No manufacturing approvals are being sought in the application. Such
approvals would be requested from 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: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; Howard Cooperman,
Deputy Assistant Regional Commissioner, U.S. Customs Service, Southeast
Region, 909 SE First Avenue, Miami, Florida 33131; and Colonel Bruce A.
Malson, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Jacksonville, P.O.
Box 4970, Jacksonville, Florida 32232.
