Foreign-Trade Zone 9Honolulu, HI; Application for Expansion An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism of the State of Hawaii, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 9, requesting authority to expand the zone to include additional sites on the island of Oahu, within the Honolulu Customs 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 August 24, 1994. On February 15, 1965, the Board authorized the State of Hawaii to establish a foreign-trade zone in the City and County of Honolulu, on the island of Oahu, (Board Order 65, 30 FR 2377, 2/20/65). The zone project has been expanded five times (Board Orders 188, 359, 399, 580 and 581), and it currently consists of five sites on three of the State's islands. Site 1 (17 acres) at Pier 2 in Honolulu Harbor; Site 2 (1,050 acres) at the James Campbell Industrial Park, Ewa (Oahu); Site 3 (109 acres) at the Mililani Technology Park, Mililani (Oahu); Site 4 (60 acres) at the Maui Research and Technology Park, Kihei (Maui); and, Site 5 (31 acres) at the Hilo Industrial Park, Hilo (island of Hawaii). The State is now requesting authority to further expand the general purpose zone to include three non-contiguous sites (44 acresproposed Sites 6-8) on the island of Oahu. Proposed Site 6 (27 acres) would involve the aviation fueling facilities at Honolulu International Airport, including the tanker terminal at Pier 51 (Sand Island), the bulk storage area for fuel storage tank facilities at Sand Island Access Road and Mokauea Street, the airport fuel storage facility at 3181 & 3201 Aolele Street, airport fueling stations and pipelines connecting the facilities. The land is owned by the State of Hawaii but under long-term lease to the Hawaii Fueling Facilities Corporation (HFFC). (A portion of the Aolele Street fuel storage facility (42,000 sq. ft.) is currently part of Subzone 9A, but this proposal would make it part of the general-purpose zone.) Proposed Site 7 (7 acres) is at Unicold Corporation's public cold-storage distribution facilities in the Airport Industrial complex at 3140 Ualena Street, Honolulu. It is owned by Loyalty Development Co. but under long-term lease to Unicold Corp. Proposed Site 8 (10 acres) would include the Hawaii Convention Center located at Kalakaua Avenue and Kapiolani Boulevard, Honolulu. The site is owned by the State of Hawaii. No manufacturing approvals are being sought for either site at this time. Such approvals would be requested from the Board on a case-by- case basis. In accordance with the Board's regulations (as revised, 56 FR 50790-50808, 10-8-91), a member of the FTZ Staff has been designated examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board.
