Lockheed Martin gets $107M in tax credits for Camden lab [Philadelphia Inquirer]: “The company will create laboratory facilities in two downtown buildings and move about 250 jobs from the company’s headquarters in Moorestown, according to the EDA. The company also has a laboratory in Cherry Hill. The company told the EDA that some of the jobs that will go to Camden are in danger of being eliminated due to increased competition in the defense industry, and that the subsidy will help save them. The facility will open next year, company spokesman Keith Little said.”

NextCity’s Diana Lind heads to [NextCity]: “I’ve learned that change is a constant in cities and an indicator of their health and dynamism. I’ve seen how it’s a good thing for people, too. It’s in this context of continuing to grow and change that I’ve decided to move on from my role as Executive Director & Editor in Chief of Next City. Later next month I’ll be heading over to Philadelphia Media Network, which owns the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News and, to lead a new focus on digital audience development. As someone who believes in the role of media to affect change in cities, I can’t think of a better way to have an impact in Philadelphia than to help reinvent the region’s biggest media company’s online presence.”
