WHAT IS AN ANC?
Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs) are unique bodies of local DC government that were created in 1974 through a District referendum. ANCs exist to ensure input from an elected advisory board that is made up of the residents of the neighborhoods that are directly affected by government action. The ANCs are the body of government with the closest official ties to the people in a neighborhood.
ANCs consider a wide range of policies and programs affecting their neighborhoods, including traffic, parking, recreation, street improvements, liquor licenses, zoning, economic development, police protection, sanitation and trash collection, and the District's annual budget. ANCs present their positions and recommendations on issues to various District government agencies, the Executive Branch, and the Council. They also present testimony to independent agencies, boards, and commissions, and may also present their positions to Federal agencies.
ANCs are subdivisions of Wards. ANC Single Member Districts (SMDs) are neighborhoods within these subdivisions with approximately 2000 residents. SMD ANC Commissioners are elected for 2-year terms and are not paid.
