                               [Docket No. 6-90] 
                                   55 FR 7354

   Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Oneida County, NY (Utica Customs Port of 
Entry); Application and Public Hearing 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) 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), by the County of Oneida, New York, requesting authority to establish a
general-purpose foreign-trade zone at sites in the County of Oneida, New 
York, within the Utica Customs port of entry. It was formally filed on 
February 9, 1990. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under 
chapter 647, Laws of New York 1988.  
   The proposed foreign-trade zone would consist of 5 sites (1,280 acres) 
within the Utica port of entry area. Site 1 (534 acres) is located at the 
Oneida County Airport Industrial Park, Oneida County Airport, Oriskany, New 
York. Site 2 (512 acres) is located at the West Rome Industrial Park, 1 
Success Drive, Rome, New York. Site 3 (100 acres) is located at Boonville 
Industrial Park, Industrial Road, Boonville, New York. Site 4 (82 acres) 
is located at the Utica Business Park, Business Park Drive, Utica, New York.
Site 5 (52 acres) is located at East Arterial Industrial Park, Dwyer 
Avenue, Utica, New York. The Oneida County Industrial Development 
Corporation (OCIDC) owns the Oneida County Airport Industrial Park and has 
agreements with the owners of the other parks to operate a zone at these 
sites. The zone will be used primarily for warehousing, transshipment, 
inspection, and repackaging activities. The operator of the project would 
be OCIDC. 
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone services to 
assist the County in its economic development efforts. It is anticipated 
that the initial zone activity would be for duty deferral on components 
used by producers of transportation equipment, machine tools, food 
processing equipment, wire/cable manufacturers, and instrument makers. The 
first facility to be activated would likely be the new hangar building at 
the Oneida County Airport Industrial Park. Approval for manufacturing 
activity is not 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: John J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, Foreign-
Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; 
Edward A. Goggin, Assistant Regional Commissioner, U.S. Customs Service, 
Northeast Region, 10 Causeway Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02222-1056; and 
Colonel Ralph M. Danielson, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District 
New York, Jacob K. Javits Federal Building, New York, New York 10278-0090.
   As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public 
hearing on March 15, 1990, beginning at 9 a.m., in the First Floor 
Conference Room, New York State Office Building, Genesee Street, Utica, New 
York 13501.  
   Interested parties are invited to present their views at the hearing. 
Persons wishing to testify should notify the Board's Executive Secretary in 
writing at the address below or by phone (202/377-2862) by March 8, 1990. 
Instead of an oral presentation, written statements may be submitted in 
accordance with the Board's regulations to the examiners committee, care of 
the Executive Secretary, at any time from the date of this notice through 
April 16, 1990.

during this time for public inspection at each of the following locations.
