    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ)

12/09 (correction 74 FR 3987, 1/22/09); 75 FR 71069-71070, 11/22/10). 
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 
September 20, 2011.
    FTZ 118 was approved by the Board on June 3, 1985 (Board Order 304, 
50 FR 24663, 06/12/85.

acres)--Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority Commerce Park, Commerce 
Park Drive, Ogdensburg, New York; and, Site 2 (32 acres)--Port of 
Ogdensburg, Lower Patterson Street, Ogdensburg, New York.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be St. 
Lawrence County, New York, 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 Ogdensburg Customs 
and Border Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone project to include both of the existing sites as ``magnet'' sites. 
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 2 be so exempted. No usage-driven 
sites are being requested at this time.
    In accordance with the Board's regulations, Kathleen Boyce 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 
November 29, 2011. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted 
during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-
day period to December 14, 2011.
