Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Clark County, Nevada, Las Vegas Customs
Port of Entry; Amendment of Application
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that the State of Nevada has amended its
application to establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in the Las
Vegas Customs port of entry area (Docket 2-81, 46 FR 5029, 1/19/81),
making the Nevada Development Authority (NDA), a private non-profit Nevada
corporation, the new applicant, and changing the proposed sites for the
facility. NDA is an economic development agency that works closely with
State and local governments. It is financed mainly by the private sector.
NDA is authorized to make this proposal under Nevada Revised Statues,
273A.010-273A.050. The amended application was formally filed on October
The change involves a restructuring of the plan for financing and
operating zone sites to serve the area's needs through a greater
involvement of the private sector. The amended project will cover about
54 acres at four sites in Las Vegas and Clark County, Nevada.
Site 1 involves the 23-acre Las Vegas Convention Center, located at
Desert Inn and Paradise Roads, Clark County. Zone procedures would be
used for international trade shows, portions of the center to be activated
with Customs approval. Site 2 is the 100,000 square-foot Cashman Field
convention center, located at Las Vegas Boulevard North and Washington
Avenue, Las Vegas, that would be used in the same way. Site 3 involves
an industrial park site covering 25 acres at Paradise and Sunset Roads,
Clark County. Space will be available for a variety of processing and
distribution operations and for firms requiring separate facilities. Site
4 is a multi-user public warehouse, located at Sunset and Bermuda Roads,
Clark County. The facility will offer 120,000 square feet for initial
general-purpose zone activity.
In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has
been appointed to investigate the amended 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;
