Application for Expansion
An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the State of Rhode Island Department of Economic
Development, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 105, Providence and North
Kingston, Rhode Island, requesting authority to expand its zone to
include a site in the City of Warwick, Rhode Island, within the
Providence 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 November 2, 1995.
FTZ 105 was approved on September 13, 1984 (Board Order 270, 49 FR
37133, 9/21/84). The zone project includes 2 sites in the Providence
Customs port of entry: Site 1 (12 acres)--within the Port of
Providence, a 185-acre commercial and industrial intermodal facility
owned by the City of Providence; and Site 2 (900 acres)--within the
Economic Development Corporation's 2000-acre Quonset Point/Davisville
Industrial Park, North Kingston.
The applicant is now requesting authority to expand the general-
purpose zone to include an additional site (proposed Site 3--43 acres)
at the Airport Business Center, adjacent to the T.F. Green State
Airport, Warwick. This zone site would become part of the City of
Warwick's economic development and industrial revitalization efforts.
No specific manufacturing requests are being made at this time.
Such requests would be made to the Board on a case-by-case basis.
