Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Docket 60-95]

Foreign-Trade Zone 50, Long Beach, CA; Application for Expansion

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Board of Harbor Commissioners of the City of Long
Beach, California, grantee of FTZ 50, requesting authority to expand
its zone at a site in San Bernardino, California, within the Los
Angeles-Long Beach Customs port of entry area. 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 5, 1995.
    FTZ 50 was approved on September 14, 1979 (Board Order 147, 44 F.R.
55919, 9/28/79) and expanded three times (Board Orders 298, 341 and
494). The zone project currently includes 3 general-purpose sites in
the Los Angeles/Long Beach Customs port of entry area: Site 1 (12
acres)--Parcel     1-A, 1500 West Dominguez St., Long Beach and Parcel
1-B, 727 Capital Drive, San Pedro; Site 2 (1,855 acres)--California
Commerce Center, Ontario; Site 3 (92 acres)--including parcels within
the Inter-City Commuter Station Redevelopment area in Santa Ana and, a
warehouse facility at 3000 and 3100 Segerstrom Avenue and 2900 and 2930
South Fairview Street, within the South Harbor Redevelopment area,
Santa Ana.
    The applicant is now requesting authority to expand the zone to
include an additional site (proposed Site 4--175 acres) within the
2,300-acre San Bernardino International Airport and Trade Center
complex (formerly Norton Air Force Base) in San Bernardino, California.
A 2.5 million square foot WorldPointe Center for International Trade is
planned for the proposed zone site (located at the northwest corner of
Mill Street and Tippecanoe Avenue). The developer of this project is
the Inland Valley Development Agency. No specific manufacturing
requests are being made at this time. Such 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.
    Public comment on the application is invited from interested
parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the
Board's Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period
for their receipt is December 15, 1995. Rebuttal comments in response
to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted
during the subsequent 15-day period to January 2, 1996.
    A copy of the application and accompanying exhibits will be
