Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Docket 63-96]

Foreign-Trade Zone 170--Clark County, Indiana Application for

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Indiana Port Commission, grantee of Foreign-Trade
Zone 170, requesting authority to expand its zone in the Clark County,
Indiana area, within the Louisville 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 August 15, 1996.

FTZ 170 was approved on December 27, 1990 (Board Order 495, 56 F.R. 673, 1/8/91). The zone currently consists of two sites in Clark County: Site 1 (35 acres)--within the 830-acre Clark Maritime Centre Complex on Utica Pike at Port Road, Jeffersonville; and, Site 2 (22 acres)--at the Clark County Airport between State Route 31 and the airport terminal, Sellersburg.

The applicant is now requesting authority to expand the general- purpose zone to include a site (Proposed Site 3--2,000 acres)--within the 10,000-acre former Indiana Army Ammunition Plant, 11452 State Road 62, Charlestown. In 1993, the U.S. Army through its Industrial Operations Command and ICI Americas Inc. (ICI) entered into a facilities use contract that allowed ICI to use the plant for non- defense activities as part of conversion efforts. ICI is in the process of developing the facility as an industrial park with the infrastructure to accommodate a range of warehouse/distribution and manufacturing operations. 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, a member of the FTZ Staff has been designated examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board.

Public comment on the application is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board's Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is October 22, 1996. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period (to November 6, 1996).

A copy of the application and accompanying exhibits will be available for public inspection at each of the following locations:

U.S. Department of Commerce Export Assistance Center, 601 W. Broadway, Room 634B, Louisville, Kentucky 40202 Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Room 3716, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230.
