Foreign-Trade Zone 5--Seattle, WA; Application for 
Reorganization/Expansion Under Alternative Site Framework

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board (the Board) by the Port of Seattle, grantee of FTZ 5, requesting 
authority to reorganize and expand the zone under the alternative site 
framework (ASF) adopted by the Board (74 FR 1170, 1/12/09; correction 
74 FR 3987, 1/22/09). The ASF is an option for grantees for the 
establishment or reorganization of general-purpose zones and can permit 
significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new ``usage-
driven'' FTZ sites for operators/users located within a grantee's 
``service area'' in the context of the Board's standard 2,000-acre 
activation limit for a general-purpose zone project. The application 
was submitted pursuant to 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 April 29, 2010.
    FTZ 5 was approved by the Board on June 27, 1949 (Board Order 19, 
14 FR 3686, 07/02/49) and had the boundaries modified on January 19, 
1953 (Board Order 31, 18 FR 556, 01/24/53). FTZ 5 was relocated on 
February 27, 1959 (Board Order 48, 24 FR 1686, 03/06/59), on August 14, 
1964 (Board Order 63, 29 FR 11987, 08/21/64), and on August 25, 1976 
(Board Order 111, 41 FR 36847, 09/01/76). FTZ 5 was expanded on 
September 25, 1989 (Board Order 432, 54 FR 40154, 09/29/89).

International Boulevard, Seattle; Site 3 (0.45 acres)--9875 40th Avenue 
South, Seattle, and Site 4 (2.75 acres)--20607 59th Place South, Kent.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be the 
Washington counties of King and Snohomish (dependent on case-by-case 
concurrence from the Port of Everett for the latter county), as 
described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to 
serve sites throughout the service area based on companies' needs for 
FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to 
the Puget Sound Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone project to include existing sites 1, 2 and 4 as ``magnet'' sites 
and existing Site 3 as a ``usage-driven'' site. The ASF allows for the 
possible exemption of one magnet site from the ``sunset'' time limits 
that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes 
that Site 1 be so exempted. The applicant is also requesting approval 
of the following initial ``usage-driven'' site: Proposed Site 5 (3.84 
acres)--Wilson Sporting Goods/Precor Incorporated, 6617 Associated 
Boulevard, Everett, WA.
    In accordance with the Board's regulations, Christopher Kemp of the 
FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and 
information presented in the application and case record and to report 
findings and recommendations to the Board.
    Public comment 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 
July 6, 2010. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted
