An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the City of Fort Wayne, Indiana, grantee of Foreign-
Trade Zone 182, requesting authority to expand its zone in the Fort
Wayne, Indiana area. The Fort Wayne International Airport is a Customs

the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on February 5, 1997.
FTZ 182 was approved on December 23, 1991 (Board Order 549, 57 F.R.
1450, 1/14/92). The general-purpose zone currently consists of three
sites: Site 1 (16,000 sq. ft.)--public warehouse at 315 East Wallace
Street, Fort Wayne; Site 2 (17,500 sq. ft.)--public warehouse at 2122
Bremer Road, Fort Wayne; and, Site 3 (50 acres)--Air Trade Center at
the Fort Wayne International Airport, Fort Wayne.

its zone project. Site 3 at the Air Trade Center, adjacent to the Fort
Wayne International Airport would be expanded to cover 443 acres; and,
