Landscape architect hailed as county's rising star.

She has left her imprint in New Rochelle, Sleepy Hollow, Port Chester and elsewhere.

This week, Suzette Lopane, a licensed landscape architect and associate planner with the county Department of Planning, was honored as one of the "Forty Under Forty--Rising Stars" by the Business Council of Westchester.

The forty young stars, aged 21-40, were selected for their professional and/or entrepreneurial accomplishments and leadership qualities.

With the department since 1996, Lopane coordinates the many agencies and local groups involved with the development of many neighborhood parks and playgrounds throughout the county, including the county's first interactive water spray playgrounds in Sleepy Hollow and Port Chester. Lopane helped design the Library Green Park in New Rochelle.

Her enthusiasm, hard work and attention to detail have resulted in the implementation of more than $20 million of public facilities projects.

County Executive Andy Spano said, "I congratulate Suzette for this well-deserved recognition. She not only has the skills to pull together the funding and cooperation of federal, state, county and local governments to make these projects work, but really goes the extra mile to connect with and listen to the local people, who are the real reason we commit to these projects."

County Commissioner of Planning Jerry Mulligan, said, "Suzette is an amazingly hard worker, team leader and enthusiastic public employee, and she cares deeply about the people she's serving."
