[Docket 39-2010]


Foreign-Trade Zone 3--San Francisco, CA; Application for 
Reorganization under Alternative Site Framework

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board (the Board) by the San Francisco Port Commission, grantee of FTZ 
3, requesting authority to reorganize 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 May 21, 2010.
    FTZ 3 was approved by the Board on March 10, 1948 (Board Order 12, 
13 FR 1459, 3/19/48) and the boundaries were modified on July 31, 1950 
(Board Order 25, 15 FR 1653, 9/8/50) and on December 20, 1956 (Board 
Order 43, 21 FR 10434, 12/28/56). FTZ 3 was relocated on May 5, 1958 
(Board Order 46, 23 FR 3277, 5/14/58), an extension of the relocation 
granted May 5, 1965 (Board Order 66, 30 FR 6596, 5/13/65) and the zone 
was relocated again on July 13, 1977 (Board Order 121, 42 FR 38942, 8/
1/77). FTZ 3 was expanded on November 21, 2000 (Board Order 1129, 65 FR 
76217, 12/6/00).
    The current zone project includes the following sites: Site 1 (5.82 
acres)--Pier 19, Pier 23, Pier 50 and Pier 80 port facilities on the 
Embarcadero, San Francisco; Site 2 (42.50 acres)--San Francisco 
International Airport jet-fuel storage and distribution system, which 
consists of the airport hydrant and storage facilities, two adjacent 
off-airport terminals, a pipeline and two off-site terminals and 
related pipelines in Brisbane and South San Francisco; Site 3 (55 
acres)--Selby Terminal petroleum facilities, 90 San Pablo Avenue, 
Crockett; and, Site 4 (164 acres)--Martinez Terminal petroleum 
facilities, 2801 Waterfront Road, Martinez.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be the City 
and County of San Francisco and the County of San Mateo, California, 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 San Francisco Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone project to include existing sites 2, 3 and 4 as ``usage-driven'' 
sites. The applicant is also requesting authority to remove Site 1 from 
the zone project due to changed circumstances. Because the ASF only 
pertains to establishing or reorganizing a general-purpose zone, the 
application would have no impact on FTZ 3's authorized subzones.
    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 27, 2010. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted 
during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-
day period to August 11, 2010.
    A copy of the application will be available for public inspection 
at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, 
Room 2111, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230-0002, and in the ``Reading Room'' section of the 
Board's Web site, which is accessible via http://www.trade.gov/ftz. For
