                                 [Docket 43-90] 
                                  55 FR 47357

   Foreign-Trade Zone 2 -- New Orleans, LA; Application for Expansion  
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Board of Commissioners of the Port of New Orleans (the 
Port), grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 2, requesting authority to expand its 
zone to two sites in Kenner, Louisiana, adjacent to the New Orleans 
International Airport, within the New Orleans 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 October 31, 1990. 
   On July 16, 1946, the Port received authority from the Board to establish
a foreign-trade zone in New Orleans (B.O. 12, 11 FR 8235, 7/31/46). The zone
was expanded in 1984 (B.O. 245, 49 FR 15006, 4/16/84) and in 1986 (B.O. 331,
51 FR 17783, 5/15/86). It currently involves a site (19 acres) at the 
Napoleon Avenue Wharf, a site (76 acres) within the Almonaster-Michoud 
Industrial District, and the entire Newport Industrial Park (700 acres) in 
New Orleans.  
   The Port is now requesting authority to expand its zone project to 
include two warehouse facilities in Kenner (Jefferson Parish), Louisiana, 
adjacent to the New Orleans International Airport. One facility is located 
at 200 Crofton Road (159,000 sq. ft., Lacour Warehousing, Inc.) and the 
other is at 2445-2447 Aberdeen Street (23,500 sq. ft., Quast and Company, 
Inc.). No manufacturing approvals are being sought in the application. 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; Joel Mish, 
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, South Central Region, 423 Canal 
Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130; and Colonel Richard V. Gorski, 
District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District New Orleans, P.O. Box 60267, 
New Orleans, Louisiana 70160.  
   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 
December 24, 1990.  
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of 
the following locations:
