An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board (the Board) by the Muskogee City-County Port Authority, grantee of FTZ 164, requesting authority to expand its zone in the Muskogee area within and adjacent to the Tulsa 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 July 12, 2006.
FTZ 164 was approved on November 17, 1989 (Board Order 450, 54 FR 49321, November 30, 1989). The general-purpose zone currently consists of one site (14.6 acres) within the Port of Muskogee's public terminal area located at Port & Industrial Park Service Road and the Port Access Road.
The applicant is now requesting authority to expand its existing site and to include two new sites in the area: Expand Site 1 to include two additional parcels at the Port of Muskogee: Parcel 2 (6 acres)—Port Site F located at 2631 Port Place Road and Parcel 3 (28 acres)—Port Site G located at the intersection of North 43rd Street East and Don Cayo Road; Proposed Site 2 (47 acres)—within the 290-acre Port of Muskogee/John T.
