Application for Expansion 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Tri-City Regional Port District (Port District), grantee
of Foreign-Trade Zone 31, requesting authority to expand the zone to include
an additional warehouse building in Granite City, within the St. Louis 
Customs port of entry. The application was submitted pursuant to the 
provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (18 USC 81a-81u), and 
the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on 
September 7, 1984. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under 
Section 1, Illinois P.A. 79-613.

foreign-trade zone in the Illinois portion of the St. Louis port of entry 
area (Board Order 122, 42 FR 46568, 9/16/77). The zone project currently 
involves a 47-acre industrial tract in the Port District's harbor area and 
a 90,000 square foot warehouse at 1603 State Street, which was activated in 
March 1981.  
   The expansion would add to the zone's approved space a 330,000 square 
foot warehouse at 1100 Niedringhaus Avenue, Granite City, two blocks from 
the State Street zone site. The proposed zone facility is owned and operated
by Fox Industries, the current zone operator. The purpose of the expansion
