Foreign-Trade Zone 50, Long Beach, CA; Application for Expansion
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Board of Harbor Commissioners of the Port of Long Beach
(BHC), grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 50, requesting authority to expand the
zone to include additional acreage at the California Commerce Center site
located in Ontario, California, adjacent to the Los Angeles-Long Beach
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 March 27, 1989.
The Long Beach zone was approved on September 14, 1979 (Board Order
147, 44 FR 55919, 9/28/79). It was expanded to include a site in Ontario on
April 2, 1985 (Board Order 298, 50 FR 15205, 4/17/85). The Ontario site
encompasses 1,350 acres in the California Commerce Center (CCC) industrial
park. In November 1988, a temporary boundary modification was approved
which shifted 505 acres from the northern section of CCC to the southern
section. The area involved is bounded by Mission Boulevard, Haven Avenue,
the Pomona Freeway and the Cucamonga Channel.
The grantee is now requesting an expansion of the CCC park site to make
the temporary 505-acre parcel in the southern section a permanent part of
the zone, and to reinstate the 505-acre parcel in the northern section. The
applicant states that development of the CCC site has been rapid for both
zone and non-zone activity, and that the additional space is needed to
accommodate prospective zone users.
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; John Heinrich,
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, 300 South Ferry
Street, Terminal Island, San Pedro, California 90731; and Colonel Tadahiko
Ono, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District, Los Angeles, P.O.
Box 2711, Los Angeles, California 90053-2325.
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 May 29, 1989.
A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
