Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Phoenix, Arizona; Application for Temporary
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the City of Phoenix, Arizona (the
City) requesting authority to establish a temporary general-purpose
foreign-trade zone site in Phoenix, within the Phoenix 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
October 14, 1981.
This proposal is related to an application made by the City on August
17, 1981, for a general-purpose foreign-trade zone at the site of the
proposed Freeport Center industrial park in Phoenix (Docket 11-81, 46
FR 42894, 8-25-81). A public hearing was held for the Board on September
24. Because it is estimated by the operator/developer that it will take
about 2 years to develop the infrastructure and construct the zone's first
building, the City has proposed a temporary zone site at which the
operator can provide zone services in the interim until January 31, 1984.
The proposed temporary site is a 6.1-acre parcel of developed land
located at North 47th Avenue and West Polk Street, Phoenix, near the
proposed permanent site. Construction of a 103,000 square foot warehouse
is underway and should be completed in March 1982.
The examiners committee currently investigating the application for
the permanent site will also examine this application.
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 20, 1981.
A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each
of the following locations:
U.S. Department of Commerce District Office,
Valley Bank Center, Suite 2950,
201 North Central Avenue,
Phoenix, Arizona 85073.
