for Reorganization Under Alternative Site Framework

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board by the Economic and Industrial Development Commission of Windsor 
Locks, grantee of FTZ 71, 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 October 15, 2014.
    FTZ 71 was approved by the FTZ Board on July 8, 1981 (Board Order 
177, 46 FR 36220, 7/14/81) and expanded on February 29, 2012 (Board 
Order 1818, 77 FR 15356-15357, 3/15/12). The current zone includes the 
following sites: Site 1 (17.5 acres), Crown Industrial Park, 399 
Turnpike Road, Windsor Locks; and, Site 2 (390 acres), New England 
Tradeport Business Park, intersection of Route 20 and International 
Drive, East Granby/Windsor Locks.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be the 
Counties of Hartford, Middlesex, Windham, Tolland and Litchfield, 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 Hartford 
Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone to include 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 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 
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. The closing period for their receipt is December 22, 
2014. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the 
foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period
