In celebration of Carol Swayne, a long-term member of the Bellevue Planning Commission and recipient of the first (1999) Loretta Ludemann Excellence in Planning by a Nebraska Woman Award. Swayne is a past president of NPZA and broke a mold when she became the first non-professional planner to serve on the board of directors of the American Planning Association. Carol Swayne’s dedication to good planning in her years of service to the City of Bellevue and the NPZA Board serves as an inspiration to other planning commissioners throughout the state.
