Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Brunswick, GA; Application and Public Hearing
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by Brunswick Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., a Georgia private
corporation, requesting authority to establish a general-purpose foreign-
trade zone in Brunswick, Georgia, within the Brunswick 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 November 7, 1986.
The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under section 52-10-4 of
the Code of Georgia Annotated.
The proposed foreign-trade zone involves 3 sites totalling 158 acres in
Brunswick, Glynn County. Site 1, located on Bay Street adjacent to the
Georgia Ports Authority East River Terminal, is a 16-acre manufacturing
facility for Concrete Products Corporation (CPC), an affiliate of the
applicant. Site 2 is a 32-acre parcel on Lanier Blvd. at 4th Avenue, and
Site 3 is a 110-acre parcel on the Brunswick River at Main Street. The
facilities are owned and operated by either CPC or the applicant.
The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the
Brunswick area for the warehousing/distribution of chemicals, wood/paper
products, insulation materials, computer supplies, and food products. No
approvals for manufacturing 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-

P.O. Box 889, Savannah, GA 31402.
As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public
hearing December 10, 1986, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in the conference room of
