Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone, Prince George's County, Md.;
Application and Public Hearing

Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the  
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by Prince George's County, a 
political subdivision of the State of Maryland, requesting authority to 
establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone within the County, and 
adjacent to the Washington, D.C. Customs port of entry. The application 
was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board 
(15 CFR Part 400).  It was formally filed on May 27, 1980.  The applicant 
is authorized to make this proposal under Section 467(a) of Article 23, 
Chapter 579, Maryland Acts of 1978.

The proposal calls for the establishment of a 77.5-acre general-purpose 
zone within the County owned Collington Center industrial park located 
immediately south of the City of Bowie at the intersection of U.S. Route 
301 and Maryland 214 (Central Avenue) in Prince George's County.  
Development of the zone would be undertaken by the applicant which 
proposes to construct a 50,000 square foot multi-purpose structure
as the zone's first facility.  Additional buildings, including built-to-suit 
structures would be constructed as required.

The application contains economic data and information concerning the need 
for a zone in the County.  Several firms have indicated their intention to 
use the requested zone for warehousing, distribution, assembly, processing, 
and light manufacturing activities involving such products as 
telecommunications test equipment, fiberglass marine items, wearing 
apparel, safety and security equipment, high pressure valves and 
compressors, and drive shafts.

In accordance with the Board's regulations, an Examiner's Committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board.  The 
committee consists of: Hugh J. Dolan (Chairman), Office of the Secretary, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th and E Streets NW, Washington, DC 20230; 
John Noon, Director, Inspection and Control Division, U.S. Customs Service, 
Region III, 40 S. Gay Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21202; and Colonel 
James W. Peck, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Baltimore, 
P.O. Box 1715, Baltimore, Maryland 21203.

As part of its investigation of the proposal, the Examiners Committee will 
hold a public hearing on June 25, 1980, beginning at 10:00 a.m., in the 
Council Hearing Room (First Floor), County Administration Building, 14741 
Governor Oden Bowie Drive, Upper Marlboro, Maryland.  The purpose of the 
hearing is to help inform interested persons, to provide an opportunity for 
their expression of views, and to obtain information useful to the 

Interested persons or their representatives are invited to present their 
views at the hearing.  They should notify the Board's executive secretary 
of their desire to be heard in writing at the address below or by phone 
(202-377-2862) by June 18, 1980.  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 July 25, 1980. Evidence submitted during 
the post-hearing period is not desired unless it is clearly shown that the 
matter is new and material and that there are good reasons why it could not 
be presented at the hearing.

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