                               [Docket No. 16-87] 
                                  52 FR 35122 
                               September 17, 1987 
Application for Expansion; Foreign-Trade Zone 9, Honolulu, HI  
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the State of Hawaii's Department of Planning and Economic 
Development, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 9, requesting authority to expand
the zone to include a technology industrial park site in the Mililani area, 
Oahu, Hawaii, within the Honolulu 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 September 4, 1987. 
   On February 15, 1965, the Board authorized the State of Hawaii to 
establish a foreign-trade zone in the Honolulu area (Board Order 65, 30 
FR 2377, 2/20/65). The general-purpose zone currently consists of 
warehousing facilities on 17 acres at Pier 2 in Honolulu Harbor. The Board 
recently approved an application to expand the zone to include a 1,050-acre
site at the James Campbell Industrial Park in Ewa, Oahu. 
   The pending application calls for an additional 109-acre industrial site
at the Mililani Technology Park, located east of the H-2 Freeway at Golf 
Course Road in the Mililani area of central Oahu, about 20 miles from 
downtown Honolulu. The site is being developed for technology-related 
operations, including light manufacturing, assembly, research and 
development, and world-wide distribution by Oceanic Properties, Inc., a 
subsidiary of Castle and Cooke, Inc., owner of the property. Because the 
zone already includes an industrial park site, the Board will evaluate the 
need for still another such 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: Joseph E. Lowry (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones 
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; George Roberts, 
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, P.O. Box 1641, 
Honolulu, Hawaii 96806; and Colonel F.W. Wanner, District Engineer, U.S. 
Army Engineer District Honolulu, Building 230, Fort Shafter, Hawaii 
   Comments concerning the proposed expansion are invited in writing from 
interested parties, including whether there is a need for another non-
contiguous industrial park site in Oahu as part of the Hawaii zone. They 
should be addressed to the Board's Executive Secretary at the address below
and postmarked on or before October 23, 1987. 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
the following locations:
