• The Advisory Neighborhood Commission for Adams Morgan
  • 1
ANC1C consists of eight Commissioners who live in the community and are elected by their neighbors to serve without pay for two-year terms.  The Commissioners vote on local matters affecting Adams Morgan residents, and District government agencies are required to give “great weight” to votes taken by the Commission.  If you have a matter that you would like ANC1C to address, please contact your Commissioner or the Chair of the relevant Committee.  We encourage everyone to participate so that we can do the best possible job representing Adams Morgan.


Marie Reed Modernization - Remaining Schedule

After many months of community feedback, a group of Commissioners has produced a draft set of potential recommendations concerning the modernization of the Marie H. Reed Community Learning Center:
The purpose of the draft is to encourage additional community input.  If you agree with some or all of the recommendations, please let us know!  If you disagree with some or all of the recommendations, please let us know!  If you have other ideas, please let us know!
The draft is substantial, so if you are planning to review it, we would highly encourage you to begin now, so that you can get your comments back to us as soon as possible.  The remaining schedule is as follows:
Monday, April 20, 6:00 PM: The ANC will hold its Special Forum to take public comments and to deliberate and vote its recommendations for the modernization.Please note that the Commission expects to be able to provide simultaneous Spanish interpretation at this meeting.  The meeting will be held at Marie Reed, 2201 18th Street NW.
We believe that the schedule will remain as set forth above, but please note that the schedule is subject to adjustment if the need arises.  And once again, we highly encourage everyone to please provide your views to the Commissioners sooner rather than later!

Envision Adams Morgan

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.  

In the first phase of Envision Adams Morgan, volunteer working groups developed a report detailing the current state of the neighborhood.  Envision Adams Morgan then launched a survey to collect opinions and ideas from residents and local businesses in the areas of sustainability, housing, economy, transportation, community services, zoning, and historic preservation.  
Between September 2014 and February 2015, Envision Adams Morgan collected 535 responses and over 900 written suggestions concerning the future of the neighborhood. Survey respondents were self-selecting and responses were not tracked or weighted by demographics. These results should be interpreted accordingly and considered reflective of the views of only those who participated in the survey. Nevertheless, those who did participate shared some excellent and constructive ideas.  
The results of this survey have been passed along to the DC Office of Planning, which is conducting the next, more formal phase of this process. The DC Office of Planning has set up a website to run polls and collect even more ideas (http://adamsmorganvision.mindmixer.com/), held a half-day community workshop on February 28th at Marie Reed Elementary School to obtain additional community input, and developed a Neighborhood Profile.  The DC Office of Planning is now drafting a vision document, which will be posted here once it becomes available. Thank you for continuing to share your vision with us!
