Site Framework

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board by the Paducah McCracken County Riverport Authority to establish 
a foreign-trade zone adjacent to the Evansville, Indiana CBP port of 
entry, 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 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 April 10, 2015. The applicant is 
authorized to make the proposal under the Kentucky Revised Statutes, 
Section 65.530.
    The proposed zone would be the third zone for the Evansville CBP 
port of entry. The existing zones are as follows: FTZ 146, Lawrence 
County, Illinois (Grantee: Bi-State Authority, Board Order 371, 2/11/
1988); and, FTZ 177, Evansville, Indiana (Grantee: Ports of Indiana, 
Board Order 513, 3/12/1991).
    The applicant's proposed service area under the ASF would be 
portions of McCracken and Livingston Counties. If approved, the 
applicant would be able to serve sites throughout the service area 
based on companies' needs for FTZ designation. The applicant has stated 
that the proposed service area is adjacent to the Evansville Customs 
and Border Protection port of entry.
    The proposed zone would include one ``magnet'' site: Proposed Site 
1 (30 acres)--Paducah/McCracken Riverport, 2000 Wayne Sullivan Drive, 
Paducah, McCracken County.
    The application indicates a need for zone services in the Western 
Kentucky 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, Elizabeth Whiteman 
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 June 15, 2015. 
Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the 
foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period 
to June 30, 2015.
    A copy of the application will be available for public inspection 
at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, 
Room 21013, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW.,
