   Foreign-Trade Zone 32 -- Dade County, FL, Area; Miami Port of Entry; 
Application for Expansion 
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board (the Board) by the Greater Miami Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of 
FTZ 32, requesting authority to expand its zone in Dade County, Florida, 
within the Miami 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 June 26, 1989. 
 
   FTZ 32, which consists of an 800,000 sq. ft. storage/distribution center,
located on a 73-acre parcel at NW. 12th Street and 97th Avenue, Dade 
County, 4 miles west of the Miami International Airport, was approved by 
the Board in 1977 (Board Order 123, 42 FR 46568, 9/16/77). 
 
   The grantee is requesting authority to expand the zone project to include
a 205-acre parcel within the Beacon Centre development, north of NW. 12th 
Street and east of NW. 8th Avenue, Dade County, Florida, one mile west of 
the airport. Warehouse/distribution facilities will be constructed, with 
400,000 sq. ft. planned at the outset. The new site would be operated by 
the Miami Free Zone Corporation, which operates the existing zone. It is 
being requested because the current zone is fully occupied and new users 
have expressed interest in using zone procedures in the Miami area. 
 
   No manufacturing requests are being made at this time. Such approvals 
would be requested from the Board on a case-by-case basis. In making this 
request, the grantee has requested that the Board accept is relinquishment 
of authority with regard to the Homestead site approved in 1982 (Board 
Order 184, 47 FR 10612, 2/8/82). 
 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate and 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; Howard Cooperman, 
Deputy Assistant Regional Commissioner, U.S. Customs Service, Southeast 
Region, 909 SE. First Avenue, Miami, FL 33131; and, Colonel Robert L. 
Herndon, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Jacksonville, P.O. 
Box 4970, Jacksonville, FL 32232.  
 
   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 August 18, 1989.
