                               [Docket No. 13-86] 
                                  51 FR 15029 
                                 April 22, 1986 
Foreign-Trade Zone 84, Harris County, TX (Houston POE); Amendment of Zone 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Port of Houston Authority (PHA), grantee of Foreign-Trade
Zone 84, requesting an amendment to its zone plan by adding 5 warehousing 
and business park sites in Harris County, Texas, within the Houston Customs
port of entry. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of 
the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 USC 81a-81u), and the 
regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on March 
7, 1986. 
   PHA received authority from the Board to establish a multisite foreign-
trade zone in Harris County, Texas, on July 15, 1983 (Board Order 214, 48 
FR 34792, 8/1/83). While 5 PHA sites were approved as conventional ones, 
the remaining sites were approved for 5 years subject to special conditions.
The zone plan was amended in 1985 to delete 8 and add 10 non-PHA sites 
subject to the same time limitations and conditions as the original ones 
(Board Order 303, 50 FR 20252). The proposed amendment of the plan would 
also be subject to the same time limitation and conditions as the other 
non-PHA sites 
   The proposed amendment would involve adding three warehousing operations 
and two business park sites to the zone project; the Care Shipping, Inc. 
facility, located on a 34-acre site on Peninsula Blvd. Near the intersection
with Sheldon Road in the Jacintoport area, Harris County: the Mirrer's 
Warehouse and Storage Co, Inc. operation, located on a 26-acre site at 8833
City Park Loop, Houston; the Manchester Terminal Corporation facility, 
located on a 73-acre site at 10000 Manchester Blvd., Houston; Easley 
Investment Corporation's 13-ace Interpark-Rankin development on 1920 Rankin
Road, Houston; and, the Transcentral Business Park on McAulty Road, Houston.
   In accordance with the 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 Gough, Deputy Assistant Regional Commissioner, U.S. Customs Service,
Southwest Region 5850 San Felipe Street, Houston, TX 77057; and Colonel 
Gordon M. Clarke, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Galveston,
P.O. Box 1229, Galveston, TX 77553.  
   Comments concerning the proposed amendment of zone plan are invited in 
writing from interested parties. They should be addressed to the Board's
