Thursday, January 16, 1992
An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) by the Port Bellingham of Whatcom County, Bellingham, Washington,
grantee of FTZ 130, located in Blaine, Washington, requesting authority to
extend zone status (removal of time restriction) at the Cambridge Industrial
Park zone site in Blaine. 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 November 6, 1991.
FTZ 130 was approved on September 4, 1986 (Board Order 335, 51 FR 32238,
9/10/86), and currently consists of a site (24 acres) adjacent to Blaine
Municipal Airport, and a site (3 acres) at the Cambridge Industrial Park,
1122 Fir Avenue, Blaine, Washington, owned by the Cambridge Equipment
Company. In 1989, the Cambridge site was granted temporary zone status (to
3/31/93) through a boundary modification (A-34-89, 12/6/89 and A-28-91,
The grantee now requests authority to extend zone status at the Cambridge
site on a permanent basis. The proposal also includes a request to restore
zone status to parcel (3 acres) that was deleted from the Airport site as
part of the boundary modification action for the Cambridge site.
