The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has received an application from the City of Waterville, Maine, grantee of FTZ 186, requesting subzone status for the Flemish Master Weavers facility in Sanford. Comments on this request are due no later than June 7.

The FTZ Board has received from the West Virginia Economic Development Authority, grantee of FTZ 229, a request for authority to reorganize and expand this zone under the alternative site framework. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Boone, Cabell, Calhoun, Clay, Fayette, Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Logan, Mason, Mingo, Putnam, Raleigh, Roane, Wayne, Wirt, Wood and Wyoming counties, within and adjacent to the Charleston, W.Va., U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. If this request is approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout this area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. Comments on this request are due no later than June 27.
