(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

(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
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

Inc.). No manufacturing approvals are being sought in the application. Such
approvals would be requested from the Board on a case-by-case basis.
