    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Culpeper County Chamber of Commerce, Inc., grantee

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
April 26, 1996.

The Airpark is owned and operated by the County as an economic development project, with certain parcels having been sold to individual companies.
