Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone, Ogdensburg, New York; Application and Public 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority (Port Authority), a 
New York public corporation, requesting authority to establish a general-
purpose foreign-trade zone in Ogdensburg, New York, within the Ogdensburg 
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
April 17, 1984. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under 
Chapter 759, Laws of New York, 1971. 
   The proposed zone will cover 71 acres within the Port Authority's 93-acre
Commerce Park in Ogdensburg. Of the six buildings located in the facility, 
5 are occupied by the computer and electronic equipment assembly operations
of firms such as Mitel, Filtran, Tech-5 Engineering, C-Tech, Compas, and 
Epitek Electronics. The sixth building is available for multi-user zone 
activity. The zone will be operated by the Port Authority as an integral 
part of the park.  
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the 
area. A number of firms, including several of the current park tennants, 
have indicated an interest in using zone procedures for warehousing/
distribution and manipulation of products such as filters, computers and 
components, communications equipment and other types of electronic 
components. Specific manufacturing requests are not being made at this 
time. Such request would be made to the Board on a case by case basis.
