The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new ‘‘subzones’’ or VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:45 Aug 11, 2014 Jkt 232001 ‘‘usage-driven’’ FTZ sites for operators/ users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the FTZ Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone project. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of 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 docketed on August 7, 2014. The applicant is authorized to make the proposal under Colorado statute 7–49.5–102. The proposed zone would be the 3rd zone for the Denver CBP port of entry. The existing zones are as follows: FTZ 112, Colorado Springs, CO (Grantee: Colorado Springs Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., Board Order 281, 49 FR 44936, 11/13/84); and, FTZ 123, Denver, CO (Grantee: City and County of Denver, Board Order 311, 50FR 34729, 08/27/1985). The applicant’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Adams, Arapahoe and Morgan Counties, Colorado and portions of Elbert, Lincoln and Washington Counties, Colorado, as described in the application. If approved, the applicant would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The application indicates that the proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Denver U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The proposed zone would include two ‘‘magnet’’ sites: Proposed Site 1 (141.16 acres)—Big Sandy industrial area, 1055 Immel Street, Limon; Proposed Site 2 (280.3 acres)—East Airport industrial area, 21650 State Highway 40, Limon. 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 application indicates a need for zone services in the Limon, Colorado area. Specific production approvals are not being sought at this time. Such requests would be made to the FTZ Board on a case-by-case basis. In accordance with the FTZ 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 FTZ Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the FTZ Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below.
