Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- St. Louis County; Missouri Application and 
Public Hearing 
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the St. Louis County Port Authority, a political subdivision 
of the State of Missouri, requesting authority to establish a general-
purpose foreign-trade zone in St. Louis County, Missouri, adjacent to the 
St. Louis 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 May 25, 1983. The applicant is authorized to make this 
proposal under Section 351.388 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri, 1978. 
 
   The propose zone covers 180,000 square feet within an underground 
warehouse facility, located on the west bank of the Mississippi River, 
5000 Bussen Road, St. Louis County, some 8 miles south of downtown St. 
Louis. This facility, with some 1 million square feet of space, can 
accommodate a variety of warehousing and manipulation activities. It is 
owned and operated by Bussen Underground Warehouse Corporation, which will 
also operate the zone project.  
 
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone procedures in 
St. Louis County. Several firms have expressed an interest in using the 
zone for the warehouse/distribution of products such as electronic parts 
and products, instruments, uniforms and footwear. 
 
   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: John J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 
20230; William L. Duncan, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, 120 S. 
Central Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63105; and Colonel Gary D. Beech, District 
Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District St. Louis, 210 Tucker Blvd. North, 
St. Louis, MO 63101. 
 
   As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public 
hearing on June 29, 1983 beginning at 9:00 A.M., in the County Council 
Chambers of the St. Louis County Government Center, 41 Central, Clayton, 
Missouri.  
 
   Interested parties are invited to present their views at the hearing.
