Reorganization Under Alternative Site Framework

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board by the City of San Antonio, grantee of FTZ 80, 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 22, 2014.
    FTZ 80 was approved by the FTZ Board on September 16, 1982 (Board

Order 522, 56 FR 24171, 5/29/1991) and on September 25, 1997 (Board 
Order 923, 62 FR 51831, 10/3/1997). The current zone includes the 
following sites in San Antonio: Site 1 (1.32 acres)--San Antonio

Convention Center & Alamodome, 200 South Alamo Street; and, Site 10 
(2,407 acres)--Port San Antonio, 143 Billy Mitchell Boulevard.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be Bexar 
County in its entirety and portions of Comal and Guadalupe Counties, 
Texas, 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

entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone as follows: Renumber Site 7A as Site 7; Renumber Site 7B as Site

proposes that Site 3 be so exempted. No subzones/usage-driven sites are 
being requested at this time. The application would have no impact on 
FTZ 80's previously authorized subzones.

the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts 
and information presented in the application and case record and to
