                                   47 FR 992 
                                January 8, 1982 
Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Mobile, Alabama; Application and Public 
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the City of Mobile, Alabama, 
requesting authority to establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in 
Mobile, within the Mobile Customs port of entry. The application was 
submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as 
amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 
400). It was formally filed on January 4, 1982. The applicant is authorized 
to make this proposal under Act No. 498 of the Regular Session of the 
Alabama Legislature, approved May 11, 1977.  
   The applicant proposes to establish the zone within the Brookley 
Industrial Complex, a 115-acre municipally-owned facility at Brookley 
Airport on Mobile Bay. It would cover 13 acres west of Brookley runway 
18-36 and immediately south of Avenue G. The zone project will be financed 
and developed by the City as part of the area's economic development plans 
and operated by the Brookley Manager.  
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the 
Mobile area. Several prospective tenants have indicated an interest in 
using the zone for warehousing, distribution, staging, processing and 
assembly of products such as excavation equipment and components, small 
aircraft engines, valves for oxygen cylinders, and fishing equipment. 
   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), Foreign-Trade Zones 
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 20230; Harvey L. 
Perry, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Region V, P.O. Box 2748, 
250 N. Water Street, Mobile, Alabama 36601; and Colonel Robert H. Ryan, 
District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Mobile, P.O. Box 2288, 
Mobile, Alabama 36628.  
   As part of its investigation, the Examiners Committee will hold a public 
hearing on February 5, 1982, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in the Conference 
Room of Building A, City Hall, Dauphin Street and I-65, Mobile, Alabama 
36633. 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. 
   Interested parties are invited to present their views at the hearing. 
They should notify the Board's Executive Secretary of their desire to be 
heard in writing at the address below or by phone (202/377-2862) by 
January 29, 1982. Instead of an oral presentation, written statements may 
be submitted in accordance with the Board's regulations to the examiners 
committee, care of the Executive Secretary, at any time from the date of 
this notice through March 8, 1982. Evidence submitted during the post-
hearing period is not desired unless it is clearly shown that the matter is 
new and material and that there are good reasons why it could not be 
presented at the hearing. A copy of the application and accompanying 
exhibits will be available during this time for public inspection at each 
of the following locations:
