Prior to 1995, Lockheed Martin operated a 158-acre facility in Burlington, Mass., where the corporation produced and tested electronics equipment. The site is currently being redeveloped by Sun Microsystems as a corporate office site.

Working with the community and Sun, Lockheed Martin developed and implemented a plan to address historical issues at the site. Sixteen Burlington residents requested the site be included as a Public Involvement Plan site under state law.


Lockheed Martin developed and implemented a comprehensive outreach plan. All interested parties were given the opportunity to provide input and to have their suggestions addressed.

This relationship had proved to be productive in developing solutions for the community, Sun Microsystems and Lockheed Martin.

In June 2000, the Corporation's public involvement activities won a Silver Anvil award from the Public Relations Society of America for the work at this location.
