Consolidation of Foreign-Trade Zones Applications; Greater Detroit Area
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that two separate applications filed on May
14, 1980 for the establishment of foreign-trade zones in the Greater
Detroit Area have been consolidated under Docket No. 8-80.
Docket No. 7-80 involved the application of the City of Detroit for a
zone at the Clark Street Port facility within the City; and, Docket No.
8-80 involved the application of the Greater Detroit Foreign-Trade Zone,
Inc. (GDFTZ), a Michigan nonprofit corporation, for a zone in Dearborn
and a special-purpose subzone at Ford Motor Company's tractor assembly
plant in Romeo (45 FR 34029).
Both proposals have been consolidated by mutual agreement of the
applicants, with a restructured GDFTZ emerging as applicant for both
proposals. This action was taken by Detroit Mayor Young and officials of
Greater Detroit Chamber of Commerce in an effort to provide foreign-trade
zone services in an efficient and coordinated manner throughout the Greater
Detroit area. A reorganizational meeting of GDFTZ was held in Detroit on
January 23, 1981.
Interested parties may submit their comments on this consolidation to
the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, U.S.
Department of Commerce, Room 2006, Washington, D.C. 20230. Comments must
be postmarked prior to February 20, 1981. For further information call
