PUBLIC NOTICE OF ALTERNATIVE SITE FRAMEWORK APPLICATION FOR FOREIGN-TRADE ZONE NO. 170

PUBLIC NOTICE OF ALTERNATIVE SITE FRAMEWORK APPLICATION

FOR FOREIGN-TRADE ZONE NO. 170
The Ports of Indiana, Grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) No. 170,
has applied to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board requesting to expand
the Service Area under the Alternative Site Framework (ASF) within
the General-Purpose Zone of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 170. 
The ASF is an option for grantees like the Ports of Indiana to

reorganize general-purpose zones to permit significantly
greater flexibility in the designation of new “usage-driven” FTZ sites
for operators/users located within the grantee’s “service area”
in accordance with the Foreign Trade Zones Board’s standard
2,000-acre activation limit for a general-purpose zone project.
The current service area includes: Clark, Floyd, Harrison,
Jackson, Scott, and Washington Counties.  The applicant is
requesting the authority to expand the ASF Service Area to include
Jefferson, Ripley, Dearborn, Brown, Ohio and Switzerland Counties.
If approved, the Grantee would be able to serve sites throughout
the service area based the area’s needs for FTZ designation.
No usage–driven sites are being proposed at this time.
Zone operations are used to improve the economic well being
of the local community in Indiana by encouraging international
business by providing an FTZ that lowers the duty rates for
imports and exports.  Public comment on the Application is
requested from interested parties.  Submissions (original and 3 copies)
shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the
address listed below.  A copy of the Application and accompanying exhibits
will be available for public inspection at each of the following locations:
the Office of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board’s Executive Secretary,
Foreign-Trade Zones Board, U.S. Department of Commerce,
1401 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Room 2111, Washington, D.C. 20230;
and at the “Reading Room” section of the Board’s Web site,
which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.  The closing period for comment is July 26, 2011.
