                               [Docket No. 44-85] 
                                  50 FR 52980 
                               December 27, 1985 
Foreign-Trade Zone 65 -- Panama City, FL; Application for Expansion  
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) by the Panama City Port Authority (PCPA), grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone 65, requesting authority to expand its zone within the Port terminal 
area in Panama City, and to include two industrial park sites in Bay 
County, Florida, adjacent to the Panama City 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 December 10, 1985. 
   On January 16, 1981, PCPA received authority from the Board to establish 
a foreign-trade zone, (Board Order 171, 46 FR 8072, 1/26/81). The project 
currently involves 15 acres at the Port of Panama City. Most existing zone 
activity involves a steel pipe manufacturer and a crane company.  
   The proposed expansion would add 542 acres to the zone project. The 
present site would be expanded to encompass the entire 125-acre Port 
terminal area, and to industrial park sites would be added to the project. 
One of the latter sites is at the Hugh Nelson Industrial Park, a 174-acre 
facility located off Highway 390, northeast of the Panama City-Bay County 
Airport and owned by the Panama City-Bay County Airport and Industrial 
District Authority. The other is a PCPA planned industrial park covering 
259 acres on U.S. Highway 231 northeast of the intersection with Highway 
167 in Bay County. The additional space will allow PCPA to offer zone 
services to companies that cannot be accommodated at the existing site. 
   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: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones 
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; Douglas Angle, 
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, South Central Region, 250 N. 
Water St., P.O. Box 27418, Mobile, AL 36628; Colonel Carroll H. Dunn, 
District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Mobile, P.O. Box 2288, 
Mobile, AL 36628. 
   Comments concerning the proposed zone expansion are invited in writing 
from interested parties. They should be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or before February 3, 1986.
