The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Bay and Washington Counties, Florida, 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 adjacent to the Panama City Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone as follows: (1) Modify Site 3 by reinstating 5 acres at the Bay Industrial Park which will now consist of 259 acres (new overall site total—510 acres); (2) modify Site 4 by removing the 5 acres located at 1076 Brickyard Road in Chipley (new overall site total—78 acres); and, (3) Sites 1, 2 (as modified), 3, 4 (as modified) and 5 will be designated 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 1 be so exempted. No subzones or usagedriven sites are being requested at this time. The application would have no impact on FTZ 65’s previously authorized subzone.
