FTZ Board Considers New Zone in Colorado, Expanded Authority at Arizona Facility
The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has received from the Town of Limon, Colo., an application to establish an FTZ under the alternative site framework with a service area of Adams, Arapahoe and Morgan counties and portions of Elbert, Lincoln and Washington counties. The proposed zone would be the third zone for the Denver U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry, following FTZ 112 in Colorado Springs and FTZ 123 in Denver. Comments on this application are due no later than Oct. 14.
The FTZ Board has also received from the City of Mesa, Ariz., grantee of FTZ 221, a notification of proposed production activity at the Apple Inc./GTAT Corp. (Project Cascade) facility within subzone 221A in Mesa. Project Cascade already has authority to produce certain components for consumer electronics within this subzone and that the current request would add finished products and foreign status materials/components to the scope of authority. Comments on this notification are due no later than Sept. 22.
