Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 36 / Wednesday, February 24, 2016 / Notices • All open and restricted gated roads within or adjacent to the units shall be kept free of felled trees. • No thinning activities would occur before July 1 to reduce the effects to nesting migratory birds. • All contractors and people involved with the proposed project must comply with the applicable food storage special order in effect when the work is performed. • There is one pond located within the project area. No precommercial thinning will occur within 300 feet of the pond to avoid adverse effects to amphibians. • Generally strive to maintain fine organic matter over at least 50 percent of the area (RFP, pages III–6 & 7). • Five to ten tons of woody debris would remain on the ground following treatments. • Areas of pile burning will be evaluated and monitored to determine if seeding or additional rehabilitation is warranted to minimize weed spread and maintain soil productivity. • Adjust chipping size and depth to provide a variation of chip depth (maximum depth of three inches including patches of unchipped) and chip size to allow differing decomposition rates and soil moisture retention lengths and to avoid negatively impacting available soil nitrogen. • Locate public firewood as close to the existing roads as possible (material resulting from thinning). • Plan for burning of piles to occur when soils are wet from snow or rain to limit impacts on soil organic matter, physical properties and soil organisms. • Routes pioneered into the project area will need to be evaluated for the most appropriate rehabilitation and closure methods. Options may include: Leaving additional slash over the area, roughing up the segment where the route departs from a system road or mastication perpendicular to the segment.

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- PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 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 FTZ Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally docketed on February 18, 2016. FTZ 70 was approved by the FTZ Board on July 21, 1981 (Board Order 176, 46 FR 3894l; July 30, l98l) and reorganized under the ASF on February 6, 2013 (Board Order 1878, FR 10129– 10130; February 13, 2013). The zone currently has a service area that includes Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne Counties, Michigan. The applicant is now requesting authority to expand the service area of the zone to include Lenawee and Livingston Counties, Michigan, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the expanded service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The application indicates that the proposed expanded service area is adjacent to the Detroit Customs and Border Protection Port of Entry. 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 April 25, 2016. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to May 9, 2016. 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., Washington, DC 20230–0002, and in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the FTZ Board’s Web site, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.
