[Order No. 883]

Grant of Authority; Establishment of a Foreign-Trade Zone, Mesa, 

    Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following Order:

    Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act ``To 
provide for the establishment of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry 
of the United States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and 
for other purposes,'' as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the Act), the 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized to grant to 
qualified corporations the privilege of establishing foreign-trade 
zones in or adjacent to U.S. Customs ports of entry;
    Whereas, the City of Mesa, Arizona (the Grantee), has made 
application to the Board (FTZ Docket 16-96, 61 FR 9675, 3/11/96), 
requesting the establishment of a foreign-trade zone at a site in Mesa, 
Arizona, adjacent to the Phoenix Customs port of entry; and,
    Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the 
Federal Register, and the Board adopts the findings and recommendations 
of the examiner's report and finds that the requirements of the Act and 
the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the 
application is in the public interest;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the 
privilege of establishing a foreign-trade zone, designated on the 
records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Zone No. 221, at the site 
described in the application, subject to the Act and the Board's
