Foreign-Trade Zone 229--Charleston, West Virginia; Application 
for Reorganization/Expansion Under Alternative Site Framework

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board by the West Virginia Economic Development Authority, grantee of 
FTZ 229, requesting authority to reorganize and expand the zone under 
the alternative site framework (ASF) adopted by the FTZ Board (15 CFR 
Sec. 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 April 22, 2016.
    FTZ 229 was approved by the FTZ Board on February 13, 1998 (Board 
Order 954, 63 FR 9177, February 24, 1998). The current zone includes 
the following site: Site 1 (24 acres)--Charleston Ordnance Center, 3100 
MacCorkle Avenue SW., South Charleston.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be the 
Counties of Boone, Cabell, Calhoun, Clay, Fayette, Jackson, Kanawha, 
Lincoln, Logan, Mason, Mingo, Putnam, Raleigh, Roane, Wayne, Wirt, Wood 
and Wyoming, 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 application indicates that 
the proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Charleston 
Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone to include existing Site 1 as a ``magnet'' site. The applicant is 
also requesting approval of the following ``magnet'' site: Proposed 
Site 2 (78 acres)--Heartland Intermodal Gateway, 401 Heartland Drive, 
Prichard, West Virginia. 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 2 be so 
exempted. The application would have no impact on FTZ 229's previously 
authorized subzones.
    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 June 27, 2016. 
Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the 
foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period 
to July 12, 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. For
