Welcome to ANC 1C PDF Print E-mail

Advisory Neighborhood Commission 1C is the elected body representing the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC. These pages provide residents with information they want about the ANC, the community, city services, and opportunities to become active in your community. They will also serve visitors as an introduction to this vibrant Washington neighborhood.

Lanier Heights Zoning PDF Print E-mail

ANC1C has received the two proposals linked below concerning zoning in Lanier Heights. One of the proposals requests a change in zoning for the rowhouse portions of Lanier Heights from R-5-B to R-4. The other proposal requests no change in zoning in Lanier Heights.

Proposal to rezone Lanier Heights
Proposal not to rezone Lanier Heights

ANC1C has now scheduled a Special Forum dedicated solely to this topic. The meeting will be on Tuesday, November 18th at 7:00 pm at the Festival Center, 1640 Columbia Road NW. We will not vote on the proposals that night. Rather, we will begin by having the group seeking the zoning change provide a 10 minute introduction of their objectives. We will then have the group opposing the zoning change provide a 10 minute introduction of their objectives. We will then take comments and questions from residents. The goal will be to generally alternate between those who favor the proposed change, those who oppose the proposed change, and those who have other views. Depending on the attendance, we will likely need to limit comments to 2 or 3 minutes per person. After every 10 or so comments, we will aim to give a representative of each group an opportunity to respond to any pertinent points and questions that have been raised. ANC1C's Commissioners will also be given an opportunity to ask questions or make comments.
ANC1C will then take the matter up again at its regularly scheduled meeting on Wednesday, December 3rd at 7:00 pm at Mary's Center, 2355 Ontario Road NW. At this meeting, there will not be presentations, or a question and answer component (unless Commissioners have questions). However, we expect to again take public comments from those in attendance, likely limited to 2 minutes per person. The Commission then expects to deliberate and vote on the substance of the proposals at this meeting on December 3rd.

We hope that everyone who is interested in this topic will join us for either or both of these meetings.

Envision Adams Morgan PDF Print E-mail
Envision Adams Morgan came about in the spring of 2012 in response to the rapid changes in development in the Adams Morgan. A committed group began meeting regularly with the Public Services and Environment Committee of the ANC1C to develop an overall vision of Adams Morgan that would serve as a both a reference and a guide for understanding Adams Morgan’s present and its future.

A baseline report was created by volunteer residents in 2013 with the support of an urban planning team from Catholic University. Residents are invited to review the report online and share their ideas and visions for our schools, business community, parks and recreation, and zoning laws with the working group and their fellow community members. There will also be an opportunity to share thoughts through a survey. See the Envision Adams Morgan website to read the baseline report and to learn more about the project.
