   Foreign-Trade Zone -- Fort Wayne, Indiana Application and Public Hearing  
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the City of Fort Wayne, Indiana, requesting authority to 
establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The 
Fort Wayne/Allen County Airport (Baer Field) was recently designated a 
"user fee" facility by the U.S. Customs Service. 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 September 4, 1990. The applicant is 
authorized to make the proposal under Indiana Code 8-10-3-2. 
   The proposed foreign-trade zone would consist of two warehouse facilities
and an industrial park site in Fort Wayne. Site 1 would consist of 9,600 sq.
ft. of a 321,600 sq. ft. public warehouse located at 3402 Meyer Road, owned 
by Commercial Warehouse & Cartage, Inc. Site 2 consists of 10,000 sq. ft. 
of a 41,500 sq. ft. public warehouse located at 2122 Bremer Road, owned by 
North American Moving & Storage, Inc. Site 3 would be located on a 50 acre 
tract of land at Baer Field, owned by the Fort Wayne/Allen County Airport 
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the 
Fort Wayne area. Several firms have indicated an interest in using zone 
procedures for the warehousing/distribution of such items as gaskets, 
acrylic giftware, roller and hammer mills, seed cleaners, plastic injecting 
and molding machines, O-rings, seals, light truck axles, electric motors, 
formed tubular products, and electronic products, including thermistor 
components and assemblies. No specific manufacturing approval is being 
sought 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, 6th Floor,

John D. Glass, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District, Detroit, 
P.O. Box 1027, Detroit, Michigan 48231-1027. 
   As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public 
hearing on October 12, 1990 beginning at 9:00 a.m. in Room 128, City-
County Building, One Main Street, Fort Wayne, Indiana 46802. 
   Interested parties are invited to present their views at the hearing.
