About ANC 2F

What’s an ANC?

The District of Columbia is divided into thirty-seven neighborhood areas, each represented by an Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC). ANCs are groups of residents, elected by their neighbors, who work to ensure that their individual neighborhoods are well-served by city government.

Each ANC regularly meets to review pending and proposed government actions of interest. Meetings are held in public and follow established rules of order. In some cases, the ANC may vote to issue formal advice to DC government agencies based on its determination of the neighborhood’s best interests. The issues inviting ANC advice are diverse: taxation, transportation, liquor licenses, public safety, planning, zoning, historic preservation, recreation, and so on. Agencies are not bound to follow ANC advice, but it is required to be given great weight┬áin the decision-making process, and ANCs are in a unique position to address the most local issues.

Each ANC area is a collection of smaller areas called Single Member Districts (SMDs). Every two years, as part of the regular DC election, the 2,000 residents in each SMD can elect a Commissioner to represent them on the local ANC (alongside Commissoners from neighboring SMDs). As officials Commissioners are unpaid and nonpartisan.
