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. 
 
   Comments concerning the proposed expansion are invited in writing from 
interested parties. They shall be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or before December 18, 
1989.
