What is an ANC?

The District of Columbia is divided into 8 Wards, which are in turn divided into Advisory Neighborhood Commissions.  There are 40 ANCs in the District, and these are further divided into single-member districts.  Commissioners are elected from each single-member district on a non-partisan basis, and serve for 2-year uncompensated terms.  The Commissioners in each ANC meet regularly to discuss and vote on matters affecting their constituents.  District government agencies are not required to follow the recommendations made by ANCs, but they are generally required to give ANC recommendations "great weight".  ANC1C is the Advisory Neighborhood Commission for Adams Morgan, and consists of eight Commissioners who live in the community.  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.

ANC1C Boundaries

ANC1C covers the area between Rock Creek and Harvard Street NW on the north, 16th Street NW on the east, U Street NW and Florida Avenue NW on the south, and Connecticut Avenue NW on the west.
