   Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone -- Clark County, Indiana Application and 
Public Hearing 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Indiana Port Commission (IPC), requesting authority to 
establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Clark County, Indiana, 
within the Louisville 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 July 17, 1989. The applicant is authorized to make this 
proposal under Indiana Code 8-10-3-2. 
   The proposed foreign-trade zone plan calls for a site at the Clark 
Maritime Center and at the Clark County Airport. The Maritime Center site 
covers 35 acres on Utica Pike at Port Road in Jeffersonville, Indiana. It 
is part of the 830-acre Clark Maritime Center Complex on the Ohio River, 
owned and operated by the IPC. The Airport site covers 22 acres on airport 
property between State Route 31 and the airport terminal area in 
Sellersburg, Indiana. The airport is owned and operated by the Clark County 
Airport Commission.  
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the 
Clark County area. Several firms have indicated an interest in using zone 
procedures for warehousing/distribution activity involving products such 
as machinery and robotics, chemicals, steel mill products, animal oils, 
battery parts, cable, and sports equipment. Specific manufacturing 
approvals are not 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: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones 
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; John F. Nelson, 
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North Central Region, 6th Floor, 
Plaza Nine Building, 55 Erieview Plaza, Cleveland, Ohio 44114; and Colonel 
David E. Peixotto, District Engineer, U.S. Engineer District Louisville, 
P.O. Box 59, Louisville, Kentucky 40201. 
   As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a 
public hearing on September 13, 1989, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in the 4th 
Floor Conference Room of the City-County Building, 501 E. Court Avenue, 
Jeffersonville, Indiana. 
   Interested parties are invited to present their views at the hearing. 
Persons wishing to testify should notify the Board's Executive Secretary in 
writing at the address below or by phone (202/377-2862) by August 31. 
Instead of an oral presentation, written statements may be submitted in 
accordance with the Board's regulations to the examiners committee, care of
