Foreign-Trade Zone 8 -- Toledo, OH; Application for Expansion
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority (Port Authority),
grantee of FTZ 8, requesting authority to expand its zone to include a site
at the Toledo airport, adjacent to the Toledo 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 July 19, 1990.
On October 11, 1960, the Board authorized the Port Authority to establish
a foreign-trade zone in the Toledo, Ohio, area (Board Order 51, 25 FR 9909,
10/15/60). Expansions were authorized by the Board on January 22, 1973
(Board Order 92, 38 FR 3015, 1/31/73), and on January 11, 1985 (Board
Order 277, 50 FR 2702, 1/18/85). The zone project currently consists of a
150-acre site within the Port of Toledo complex at the Overseas Cargo
Center, 3322 St. Lawrence Drive, Toledo.
The proposed expansion would add a site (350 acres) at the Toledo Express
Airport, Toledo's main commercial airport, located in Swanton, Ohio, some 5
miles west of Toledo. The airport, including the proposed zone site, is
owned by the city of Toledo and operated by the Port Authority.
No specific manufacturing requests are being made at this time. Such
requests 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: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; John F. Nelson,
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North Central Region, 55 Erieview
Plaza, 6th Floor, Cleveland, OH 44114; and, Colonel Hugh F. Boyd III,
District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Buffalo, 1776 Niagara Street,
Buffalo, NY 14207.
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
September 20, 1990.
