Board by the City of Waterville, Maine, grantee of FTZ 186, requesting 
authority to reorganize the zone under the alternative site framework 
(ASF) adopted by the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.2(c)). 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 ``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. 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 docketed on September 11, 2014.
    FTZ 186 was approved by the FTZ Board on August 4, 1992 (Board

to the City of Waterville on June 10, 2013 (Board Order 1903, 78 FR 
36165, 6/17/13). The current zone includes the following site: Site 1

    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be the 
Counties of Lincoln, Cumberland, Sagadahoc, Androscoggin, Kennebec,

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 Belfast Customs and Border 
Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone to include the existing site as a ``magnet'' 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. No subzones/usage-driven sites are 
being requested at this time.
    In accordance with the FTZ 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
