Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the Jacksonville Port 
Authority for a Foreign-Trade Zone in Jacksonville, Florida  

TEXT: Resolution and Order 

   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board has adopted the following Resolution and Order: 

   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  

   After consideration of the application of the Jacksonville Port 
Authority, Jacksonville, Florida, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) on May 29, 1980, requesting a grant of authority for 
establishing, operating, and maintaining a general-purpose foreign-trade 
zone in Jacksonville, within the Jacksonville Customs port of entry, the 
Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as 
amended, and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal 
is in the public interest, approves the application. 

   As the proposal involves open space on which buildings may be 
constructed by parties other than the grantee, this approval includes 
authority to the grantee to permit the erection of such buildings, 
pursuant to Section 400.815 of the Board's regulations, as are necessary 
to carry out the zone proposal, providing that prior to its granting such 
permission it shall have the concurrences of the local District Director 
of Customs, the U.S. Army District Engineer, when appropriate, and the 
Board's Executive Secretary. Further, the grantee shall notify the Board's 
Executive Secretary for approval prior to the commencement of any 
manufacturing operation within the zone. The Secretary of Commerce, as 
Chairman and Executive Officer of the Board, is hereby authorized to 
issue a grant of authority and appropriate Board Order. 
Grant To Establish, Operate, and Maintain a Foreign-Trade Zone in 
Jacksonville, Florida 

   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To 
provide for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of foreign-trade 
zones in ports of entry of the United States, to expedite and encourage 
foreign commerce, and for other purposes," as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) 
(the Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized and 
empowered to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, 
operating, and maintaining foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to ports 
of entry under the jurisdiction of the United States;  

   Whereas, the Jacksonville Port Authority, a Florida public corporation, 
(the Grantee) has made application (filed May 29, 1980) in due and proper 
form to the Board, requesting the establishment, operation and maintenance 
of a foreign-trade zone in Jacksonville, within the Jacksonville Customs 
port of entry; 

   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard; and

   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's Regulations (15 CFR Part 400) are satisfied; 

   Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege 
of establishing, operating, and maintaining a foreign-trade zone, 
designated on the records of the Board as Zone No. 64 at the location 
mentioned above and more particularly described on the maps and drawings 
accompanying the application in Exhibits IX and X, said grant being 
subject to the provisions, conditions, and restrictions of the Act and 
the Regulations issued thereunder, to the same extent as though the same 
were fully set forth herein, and also to the following express conditions 
and limitations: 

   Operation of the foreign-trade zone shall be commenced by the Grantee 
within a reasonable time from the date of issuance of the grant, and 
prior thereto the Grantee shall obtain all necessary permits from Federal, 
State, and municipal authorities. 

   The Grantee shall allow officers and employees of the United States 
free and unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade zone 
site in the performance of their official duties. 

   The Grantee shall notify the Executive Secretary of the Board for 
approval prior to the commencement of any manufacturing operations within 
the zone.  

   The grant shall not be construed to relieve the Grantee from liability 
for injury or damage to the person or property of others occasioned by the 
construction, operation, or maintenance of said zone, and in no event 
shall the United States be liable therefor. 

   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District 
Director of Customs and the Army District Engineer with the Grantee 
regarding compliance with their respective requirements for the 
protection of the revenue of the United States and the installation of 
suitable facilities.  

   In witness whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name 
to be signed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and 
Executive Officer at Washington, D.C. this 29th day of December 1980, 
pursuant to Order of the Board. 

Foreign-Trade Zones Board. 

Philip M. Klutznick, 
Chairman and Executive Officer.
