Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone; Onondaga County, New York (Syracuse Port of Entry); Application and Public Hearing

TEXT: Notice is hereby given that an application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the County of Onondaga, New York, requesting authority to establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in the Town of Clay, Onondaga County, adjacent to the Syracuse 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 March 7, 1983. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under County Law Section 224 (Subd. 23) of McKinney's Consolidated Laws of New York.

The proposed zone will cover 21 acres within the 1,300-acre Woodward Industrial Park on Steelway Boulevard, in the Town of Clay, some 5 miles from the Syracuse-Hancock International Airport. An existing 64,000 square foot warehouse is available for initial general-purpose zone operations. The property is owned by the Paul-Jeffrey Company, Inc., a distribution and warehousing service, which has been designated the zone operator. The zone project will be administered on behalf of the applicant by the Greater Syracuse Foreign Trade Zone, Ltd., a non-profit corporation affiliated with the Greater Syracuse Chamber of Commerce.

The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the greater Syracuse area. A number of prospective tenants have indicated an interest in using the zone for warehousing, consolidation, packaging, manipulation and manufacturing of commercial laundry and dry cleaning equipment, compressors, filtration products, automobile lighting and safety equipment, electrical and electronic products, medical instruments, china, frozen food and wooden toys. Specific manufacturing approvals are not being sought at this time, requests to be made to the Board on a case-by-case basis.

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; Edward A. Goggin, Assistant Regional Commissioner, U.S. Customs Service, Northeast Region, 100 Summer Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02110; and Colonel Robert B. Hardiman, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Buffalo, 1776 Niagara Street, Buffalo, New York 14207.

As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public hearing on April 6, 1983, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in Room 1023 of the James M. Hanley Federal Building, 100 Clinton St., Syracuse, N.Y. 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 April 1. 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 May 6, 1983. 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:

Port Director's Office, U.S. Customs Service, Federal Building, Room 1219, 100 South Clinton Street, Syracuse, New York 13260
