Foreign-Trade Zone 64; Jacksonville, FL; Application for Expansion
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Jacksonville Port Authority (JPA), grantee of FTZ 64,
requesting authority to expand its zone in Jacksonville, Florida, within
the Jacksonville Customs port of entry. The application was submitted
pursuant to the provisons of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19
USC 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was
formally filed on July 18, 1990.
FTZ 64 was approved on December 29, 1980 (Board Order 170, 46 FR 1330,
1/6/81). Expansions were authorized by the Board on September 20, 1985
(Board Order 312, 50 FR 40209, 10/2/85), and December 24, 1986 (Board Order
337, 52 FR 1214, 1/12/87). The project currently involves 3 sites: Site 1
(2.4 acres) at the Jacksonville International Airport; Site 2 (43 acres) a
warehouse facility owned and operated by Unit Distribution, Inc., located
at 2201 North Ellis Road; and, Site 3 (119 acres) within JPA's 856-acre
Blount Island Terminal.
The current proposal would expand Site 1 at the airport site by adding
a parcel (144 acres) at Pecan Park and Terrell Roads; expand Site 3 to
include the entire JPA Blount Island Terminal Complex; add a site (135
acres) at JPA's Talleyrand Docks and Terminal Facility, 2701 Talleyrand
Avenue; and, add a site (200 acres) at the International Tradeport Complex
at Airport Road. All of the new sites involve JPA property except the
Tradeport complex which is owned by Wilma Southeast, Inc.
No manufacturing approvals are being sought at this time. Such approvals
would be requested from 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; Howard Cooperman,
