Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Denver, CO; Application and Public Hearing
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the City and County of Denver, Colorado, a home-rule
municipality, requesting authority to establish a general-purpose foreign-
trade zone in Denver, within the Denver customs port of entry. The
application was submitted pursuant to the provisons 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 November 1, 1984. The applicant
is authorized to make this proposal under Article 49.5, Title 7 of the
Colorado Revised Statutes.
The proposed foreign-trade zone will cover 13 acres within the 280-acre
Denver Business Center industrial park, adjacent to Stapleton International
Airport, on its east. Development and operation of the zone facility will
be handled by the Aspen Group.
The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the
Denver area. A number of firms have indicated an interest in using zone
procedures for the warehousing and manipulation of products such as plasma
coating equipment, agricultural chemicals, office equipment,
pharmaceuticals, luggage, optical equipment, apparel and spices. No
specific manufacturing approvals are being sought at this time. Such
requests would 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;
Donald Myhra, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North Central Region,
600 Central Ave., Great Falls, MT 59401; and Colonel William R. Andrews,
Distict Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Omaha, USPO & Courthouse,
Room 6012, Omaha, NE 68102.
As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public
hearing on December 13, 1984, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in the City Council
Chambers, Room 451, the City and County Building, Denver.
Interested parties are invited to present their views at the hearing.
Persons wishing to testify should notify the Board's Executive Secretary in
writing at the address below or by phone (202/377-2862) by December 4,
1984. Instead of an oral presentation, written statements may be submitted
in accordance with the Board's regulations to the examiners committee, care
