Advanced Micro Devices will be filing applications for final zoning and environmental approvals of its planned Luther Forest computer chip plant on Feb. 25, a company official said Thursday.

The town that day will receive a request to amend parts of the Luther Forest Technology Campus zoning, a supplemental environmental impact statement and an outline of AMD’s manufacturing requirements. That will launch a town review that will probably last a number of months.
“We’re working through all the details based on the preliminary (plant) design, while positioning ourselves for final design,” said Steve Groseclose, AMD’s director of global environmental, health and safety, and leader of the regulatory application team.
Groseclose spoke to the Saratoga County Industrial Development Agency, which is also expected to play a role as AMD goes forward with plans for its $3.2 billion plant, where up to 1,200 people could work.
AMD has until July 2009 to make a final commitment to build the plant, and qualify for $1.2 billion in state economic development incentives.
“We intend to decide as soon as we can and as soon as it makes sense,” Groseclose said.
