53 FR 6020
February 29, 1988
Foreign-Trade Zone 70, Detroit, MI; Application for Expansion
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) by the Greater Detroit Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc. (GDFTZ), grantee of
FTZ 70, requesting authority to expand the zone to include two additional
general-purpose zone sites in Detroit, within the Detroit, Michigan, 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
February 16, 1988.
The Detroit zone was approved in July 1981, and reorganized in April 1985.
Since then, there have also been two boundary modifications. The zone project
presently consists of five general-purpose zone sites (total area, 16 acres,
with some 350,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space) in Detroit. The change
requested in this application involves the addition of two 32-acre general-
purpose sites, one of which contains warehousing space that was authorized
under a boundary modification until July 1990. One of the two new sites is
at the Lynch Road Industrial Park Condominium located at Lynch Road and Mt.
Elliott Avenue. The owner is Lynch Road Properties, Inc., and the operator
of the site will be Progressive Distribution Centers, Inc. The second site
(two parcels) is owned by the Detroit Economic Development Corporation, and
is located at Clark and Fort Streets, at the former Rockwell International
and Fruehauf Corporation properties. GDFTZ indicates it needs the additional
sites to accommodate new zone business.
In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has
been designated to investigate the application and report to the Board. The
committee consists of: Joseph Lowry (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones Staff,
U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; William L. Morandini,
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North Cental Region, Patrick V.

Robert F. Harris, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Detroit,
P.O. Box 1027, Detroit, MI 48231-1027.
Comments concerning the proposed 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 April 12, 1988.
