is designed to help attract new manufacturing and retain established 
industries in accordance with City and State economic development plans. 
Covering 20 acres, the zone will be located within the complex on Holabird 
Avenue at Broening Highway. A developer/operator, will be selected by the 
City to construct a multi-user building and open space will be reserved 
for firms requiring their own facilities for processing and light

Baltimore area. Prospective tenants have indicated an interest in using the 
zone for processing, assembly, light manufacturing, storage and 
distribution of products such as machine parts, medical equipment, and 
electronic components and products. 

   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The

Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Baltimore, P.O. Box 1715, Baltimore, 
Maryland 21203.  

   As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a 
public hearing on September 15, 1981, beginning at 10:00 a.m., in the 
Constellation Room, 2123 World Trade Center, 401 E. Pratt Street, 
Baltimore, Maryland 21202. The purpose of the hearing is to help inform 
interested persons about the proposal, to provide an opportunity for their 
expression of views, and to obtain information useful to the examiners.
