                                  55 FR 10270 
                                 March 20, 1990 
   Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone in Presidio, TX; Application and Public 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) by the Presidio Economic Development Corporation, a Texas non-profit 
corporation, requesting authority to establish a general-purpose foreign-
trade zone in Presidio, Texas, within the Presidio Customs port of entry. It
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 March 1, 1990. The applicant is authorized 
to make this proposal under Article 1446.01 of Vernon's Annotated Statutes 
of the State of Texas. 
   The proposed general-purpose zone would be situated at a new 184-acre 
industrial park which straddles State Highway 67 and the Customs border 
offices, adjacent to the U.S.-Mexico border crossing in Presidio, Texas. 
Zone status is requested for the entire industrial park, which is owned by 
RCS, Inc., the developer. 
   The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the 
Presidio area for the storage, inspection and distribution of produce, 
textiles/apparel, furniture, industrial equipment, and electronic products 
and components. Zone procedures would also be used in conjunction with the 
inspection of cattle from Mexico. No specific manufacturing approval is 
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; Paul Rimmer, 
Deputy Assistant Regional Commissioner, U.S. Customs Service, Southwest 
Region, 5850 San Felipe Street, Houston, Texas 77057-3012; and Lt. Colonel 
Steven M. Dougan, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District 
Albuquerque, P.O. Box 1580, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87103-1580. 
   As part of its investigation, the examiners committee will hold a public 
hearing on April 3, 1990, beginning at 10 a.m. at City Hall, West O'Reilly 
Street, Presidio, Texas 79845. 
   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 March 27, 1990. 
Instead of an oral presentation, written statements may be submitted in 
accordance with the Board's regulations to the examiners committee, care of
