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 February 22, 2017.
    FTZ 269 was approved by the FTZ Board on April 3, 2006 (Board Order 
1438, 71 FR 20074, April 19, 2006). The current zone includes the 
following sites: Site 1 (127 acres)--Athens Industrial Park, 1621 
Enterprise Street, Athens; and, Site 2 (59 acres)--Henderson Industrial 
Park, 1380 Flat Creek Road, Athens.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be the City 
of Athens, 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 application indicates that 
the proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Dallas-Fort 
Worth Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone to include both of the existing sites as ``magnet'' sites. No 
subzones/usage-driven sites are being requested at this time.
    In accordance with the FTZ Board's regulations, Camille Evans of 
the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts 
and information presented in the application and case record and to
