Foreign-Trade Zone No. 54, Clinton County, New York; Application for
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Clinton County Area
Development Corporation (CCADC) on behalf of Clinton County, New York,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 54, requesting authority to expand its
zone project at the Clinton County Air Industrial Park, adjacent to the
Champlain-Rouses Point 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 September 25, 1981. The
applicant is authorized to make this proposal under Chapter 575 of the
New York Laws of 1979, approved July 10, 1979.
On February 14, 1980, the Board authorized Clinton County, New York,
to establish a foreign-trade zone project for the Plattsburgh-Champlain,
New York, area (Board Order 153, 45 FR 12469). The project offers zone
services in Plattsburgh at the Clinton County Air Industrial Park
(Site 1), and in Champlain at a border-crossing warehouse (Site 2).
CCADC, the zone administrator, is currently in the process of activating
both zone sites. Champlain Warehouse and Distribution, Inc. has been
designated to operate the public warehousing aspects of the project.
The applicant proposs to expend Site 1 from its present 22 acres to
include the entire industrial park of 123 acres. The request is based on
the need to accommodate prospective tenants and to have standby space for
effective zone development. Several firms requiring separate facilities
that could not be accommodated within the existing zone area, have
indicated an interest in locating in the park.
In accordance with the Board's regulations, an Examiners Committee has
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board.
The committee consists of Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), International
Trade Specialist, Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce,
Washington, D.C. 20230; Edward A. Goggin, Assistant Regional Commissioner
(Operations), U.S. Customs Service, Region I, 100 Summer Street, Boston,

U.S. Army Engineer District New York, 26 Federal Plaza, New York, New
Comments concerning the proposed zone expansion are invited in writing
from interested persons and organizations. They should be addressed to
the Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or
before November 10, 1981.
