The Daily Record Announces 2023 Maryland's Top 100 Women

Department of Transportation’s Interim Director Corren Johnson and Communications Chief Marly Cardona Moz 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 Announces Expansion of the Outdoor Dining Program


Existing Outdoor Dining Permits will be temporarily extended through June 2023

Baltimore, MD (12/22/2022) - The Baltimore City Department of Transportation (BCDOT) announced today that it will soon be expanding its outdoor dining program to include permanent curbside parklets. 

The BCDOT temporarily modified its outdoor dining program back in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Curbside parklets 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, BCDOT has observed a widespread utilization of outdoor dining parklets.  As a result, the agency has been working to expand its outdoor dining policy by making curbside parklets a permanent program.  The new policy will formalize design standards and include safety improvements for pedestrians, diners, and all roadway users.  This policy will also establish minor privilege permits and fees for outdoor dining and lease of the public right-of-way.  BCDOT will be proposing an annual flat rate of $10 per square foot of curbside facility space. 

The initial draft of the expanded policy was open for a 30-day comment period on October 14th and over 1,000 public comments were received.  More than 85% of all comments expressed support for making curbside dining parklets a permanent program.  The BCDOT has reviewed the public’s input for valuable information, and amendments have been incorporated into the draft policy for an improved program. 

At this time, the BCDOT is now accepting a second round of public comments on the proposed curbside commercial policy.  The public comment period will be open for 30 days starting December 21, 2022, and residents are encouraged to share their feedback.  All comments received during this period will be considered in future updates to the policy. 

The revised outdoor dining policy is expected to be implemented on July 1, 2023.  Until the new program is finalized, the Department of Transportation will be extending the existing temporary permits related to outdoor dining parklets through June 30, 2023.
