Foreign-Trade Zone 64, Jacksonville, Florida; Application for Temporary
TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Jacksonville Port Authority,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 64, requesting authority to establish a
temporary zone site in Jacksonville, Florida, within the Jacksonville
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 12, 1982. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal
under Chapter 288.36 of the Florida Statutes (1979).
On December 29, 1980, the Port Authority received authority from the
Board to establish a foreign-trade zone project in the Jacksonville area
(Board Order 170, 46 FR 1330, 1/6/81). The project covers 143 acres of
undeveloped land within a 7000-acre tract adjacent to the Jacksonville
International Airport planned for distribution/light industrial activity.
Because of the expected time lag in development of the permanent site,
the applicant requests a 3-year temporary sites at an existing warehouse
so that zone services can be provided as soon as possible. The 200,000
square foot facility is located at 2001 North Ellis Road in Jacksonville,
some 15 miles from the Airport and 8 miles from the Talleyrand Docks and
Terminals. It is owned and operated by Unit Distribution, Inc., which
presently operates public and bonded warehouse facilities and has been
designated as the operator of FTZ 64.
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 Zone
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 20230; Charles W.
Winwood, Director (Inspection and Control), U.S. Customs Service, Region

Devereaux, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Jacksonville,
P.O. Box 4970, Jacksonville, Florida 32232.
Comments concerning the proposed temporary site 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 February 22, 1982.
