[Docket No. 16-84]
49 FR 18881
May 3, 1984
Foreign-Trade Zone 41, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Application for Reorganization
-- Public Hearing
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Foreign-Trade Zone of Wisconsin, Ltd. (FTZW), grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone 41, Milwaukee, requesting authority to reorganize its
zone project, adding sites in Milwaukee County, within the Milwaukee 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
27, 1984. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under Chapter
110 of the Wisconsin Laws of 1977, approved October 13, 1977.
On September 29, 1978, the Board authorized FTZW to establish a foreign-
trade zone in the Milwaukee area (Board Order 136, 43 FR 46887, 10/11/78).
The project was expanded in August 1981 (Board Order 178, 46 FR 40718,
8/11/81) adding 40 acres to the original 5.8-acre site in Milwaukee's
Northwestern Industrial Park (NIP).
The reorganization of the zone would involve relocating general-purpose
zone warehousing operations to a site at General Mitchell Airfield and
adding industrial park space in West Allis. Zone warehousing activities,
currently operated by FTZW on a 5.8-acre site at 8512 W. Bradley Road in
Milwaukee, would be moved to 2100 East College Avenue in Cudahy at the
airport. The new 78,000-square foot warehouse facility is owned and
operated by Ace World Wide Moving and Storage. The 40-acre open space area
at NIP would remain as part of the zone project.
The new industrial park site would be located at the 120-acre West Allis
Industrial Center, 1126, S. 70th St., West Allis, which has over one million
square feet of manufacturing space. This facility would provide zone space
for prospective heavy asembly and manufacturing operations that cannot be
accommodated at other zone facilities. Allis Chalmers Corporation, which
owns the park, will also operate the facility's zone activity.
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;
Clinton P. Littlefield, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North
Central Region, 628 E. Michigan St., Milwaukee, WI 53202; and Colonel
Raymond T. Beurket, Jr., District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District
Detroit, P.O. Box 1027, Detroit, MI 48231.
As part of its investigation the examiners committee will hold a public
hearing on June 5, 1984, beginning at 9:00 a.m. in Room C-263, Auditorium,
Milwaukee Area Technical College, 1036 North 8th Street, Milwaukee.
Interested parties are invited to present their views at the meeting.
Persons wishing to participate should notify the Board's Executive
Secretary in writing at the address below or by phone (202/377-2862) by May
28. Instead of an oral presentation, written statements may be submitted in
accordance with the Board's regulations to the examiners committee, care of
