Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone in Volusia and Flagler Counties, FL;
and Public Hearing
Thursday, February 18, 1993
An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) by the County of Volusia, Florida, requesting authority to establish
a general-purpose foreign-trade zone at sites in Volusia County and Flagler
County, Florida. The Daytona Beach International Airport in Volusia County
has been designated a Customs user fee port facility by the U.S. Customs
Service. 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 February 12, 1993.
The applicant is authorized to make the proposal under Section 288.36,
Florida Statutes Annotated (1991). The proposed foreign-trade zone would
consist of 5 sites (6,140 acres) with Sites 1-3 located in Volusia County
and Sites 4 and 5 located in Flagler County: Site 1 (2,422 acres)--Daytona
Beach International Airport and Daytona Beach Business Park, U.S. Route 92,
Daytona Beach, Florida; Site 2 (625 acres)--DeLand Airport/Industrial Parks,
Old Daytona Road, DeLand, Florida; Site 3 (1,304 acres)--Ormond Beach
Airport/Business Park, Airport Road, Ormond Beach, Florida; Site 4 (1,200
acres)--Flagler County Airport, State Road 100, Bunnell, Florida; and,
Site 5 (589 acres)--Pine Lakes/Palm Coast Industrial Parks, Pine Lakes
Highway, Palm Coast, Florida. The sites are owned by the public agencies
involved, except for the Daytona Beach Business Park, which was developed
by the City and County and is now privately owned, and the Pine Lakes/Palm
Coast Industrial Parks, owned by the ITT Land Corporation.
The application contains evidence of the need for zone services in the
Counties of Volusia and Flagler. Several firms have indicated an interest
in using zone procedures for warehousing/distribution of such items as
chemicals, sunglasses, heart pacemakers, high voltage power supplies,
amusement games, and electronic instrumentation devices. Specific
manufacturing approvals are not being sought at this time. Requests would
be made to the Board on a case-by- case basis.
In accordance with the Board's regulations (as revised, 56 FR 50790-50808,
10- 8-91), a member of the FTZ Staff has been designated examiner to
investigate the application and report to the Board.
As part of the investigation, the Commerce examiner will hold a public
hearing on March 17, 1993, at 9 a.m., Daytona Beach International Airport
Terminal Building, Volusia Room, 2nd Floor, Daytona Beach, Florida.
Public comment on the application is invited from interested parties.

Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their
receipt is April 19, 1993. Rebuttal comments in response to material
