The Daily Record Announces 2023 Maryland's Top 100 Women


Department of Transportation’s Interim Director Corren Johnson and Communications Chief Marly Cardona Moz were chosen as honorees

Baltimore, MD (March 24, 2023) — The Baltimore City Department of Transportation is proud to announce that two Agency Managers have been honored by The Daily Record.  The Daily Record has named Interim Director Corren Johnson and Communications Chief Marly Cardona Moz to its 2023 listing of Maryland’s Top 100 Women.

Maryland’s Top 100 Women was founded in 1996 to recognize outstanding achievements by women demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership, and mentoring.

Nominees were asked to complete an application outlining their educational and career history, professional and community

involvement, corporate and nonprofit board memberships, and mentoring experience. They were encouraged to submit letters of recommendation from those who are familiar with their accomplishments professionally, in the community, and through mentoring.

Fourteen women will be inducted into the Circle of Excellence, receiving the award for a third and final time.

A panel of business and legal professionals, previous Maryland’s Top 100 Women honorees from throughout the state, and a representative of The Daily Record reviewed the final applications and selected this year’s honorees. 

In the first round of judging, more than 20 Circle of Excellence volunteers reviewed over 300 applications. They scored each application to assist The Daily Record in identifying 150 nominees to go forward to the final round of judging. During the final round, six previous Maryland’s Top 100 honorees reviewed each application packet closely and then met to discuss and finalize the 100 winners. 

“The 2023 Maryland’s Top 100 Women are leading companies, creating change, breaking barriers, and charting new territory. They are leaders who make a difference in their communities and also mentor and inspire future leaders toward success,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, managing director of The Daily Record/BridgeTower Media. “This year’s Circle of Excellence honorees are inspirational. They have been active, successful leaders in their professions and in their communities for many years and are also devoted to mentoring future generations. We at The Daily Record are honored to recognize these outstanding women.”  

Maryland's Top 100 Women will be honored at a reception and awards celebration on May 8 at The Lyric Baltimore, 140 W. Mount Royal Avenue in Baltimore. The VIP reception begins at 4 p.m., and doors open for the general networking reception at 4:30 p.m. The awards celebration starts at 6 p.m. followed by a dessert reception.

Department of Transportation Adopts New Curbside Commercial Policy

New Curbside Commercial Policy to go into effect starting July 1st

Baltimore, MD (4/21/2023) - The Baltimore City Department of Transportation (BCDOT) announced today the adoption of its new Curbside Commercial Policy, aimed at creating a permanent program for expanded outdoor dining. 

The BCDOT temporarily modified its outdoor dining program back in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Curbside facilities were temporarily approved for outdoor dining to promote social distancing and to provide hardship assistance for the hospitality industry which was heavily impacted at that time. 

Since the program's inception, the BCDOT has observed a widespread utilization of curbside facilities within commercial areas.  As a result, the department has been working for over a year with partner municipal agencies and stakeholders to create new regulations allowing for the permanent expansion of curbside dining.  The new policy will formalize curbside facility construction standards, permit holder responsibilities, and safety improvements for pedestrians, diners, and all roadway users. 

Consistent with the City’s Charter, the new policy will require minor privilege permits and fees for curbside commercial facilities and utilization of the public right-of-way.  The BCDOT is actively working to advance a new Curbside Commercial Fee Schedule through the Board of Estimates, aimed at establishing variable rates based on the location of the applicant’s business, with rates capped at $10 per square foot.

Curbside Commercial Policy drafting efforts were aided by public comments submitted to the BCDOT. The BCDOT has reviewed the public’s input for valuable information, and amendments were incorporated into the final policy for an improved program. 

The BCDOT will begin accepting applications for curbside commercial facilities on Monday, May 1st.  Applications can be submitted directly online by clicking here.  

Existing emergency permits are valid through June 30th and enforcement of the new Curbside Commercial Policy will begin July 1, 2023.  Compliance with the new policy will require a minor privilege permit and facilities must be constructed to the policy’s design standards.  Unpermitted curbside commercial facilities are subject to removal by the BCDOT.  Questions regarding the new policy can be submitted to the BCDOT Right-of-Way Services Division by clicking here.
