The proposed service area under the ASF would be the counties of Amelia, Appomattox, Brunswick, Buckingham, Caroline, Charles City, Charlotte, Chesterfield, Cumberland, Dinwiddie, Essex, Greensville, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, King and Queen, King George, King William, Lancaster, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, Middlesex, New Kent, Northumberland, Nottoway, Powhatan, Prince Edward, Prince George, Richmond and Westmoreland and the cities of Colonial Heights, Emporia, Hopewell, Petersburg and Richmond, Va., within and adjacent to the Richmond U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The application would have no impact on FTZ 207’s previously authorized subzones. Comments on this application are due no later than Aug. 5.
