Foreign-Trade Zones Board

[Docket 49-2011]

Proposed Foreign-Trade Zone--Brunswick, ME; Application

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority to 
establish a general-purpose foreign-trade zone at a site in Brunswick, 
Maine, adjacent to the Portland CBP port of entry. 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 filed on July 26, 2011. The applicant is 
authorized to make the proposal under Maine Statute Title 5, Section 
    The proposed zone would be the second general-purpose zone for the 
Portland CBP port of entry. The existing zone is as follows: FTZ 263, 
Auburn, Maine (Grantee: Lewiston-Auburn Economic Growth Council, Board 
Order 1354, 10/01/04).
    The proposed zone would consist of one site in Brunswick, Maine: 
Proposed Site 1 (394 acres)--within the 3,200-acre Brunswick Landing's 
Airport complex located at the intersection of Bath Road and Fitch 
Avenue. The site is owned by the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment 
    The application indicates a need for zone services in the 
Brunswick, Maine area. Several firms have indicated an interest in 
using zone procedures for warehousing/distribution activities for a 
variety of products. Specific manufacturing approvals are not being 
sought at this time. Such requests would be made to the Board on a 
case-by-case basis.
    In accordance with the 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 Board.

(original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is 
September 30, 2011. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted 
during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-
day period to October 17, 2011.
    A copy of the application will be available for public inspection 
at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, 
Room 2111, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue, NW.,
