Ward 1 Advisory Neighborhood Commissions
The District’s Advisory Neighborhood Commissions are the body of government with the closest official ties to the people in a neighborhood. They consider a wide range of policies and programs including traffic, parking, recreation, street improvements, liquor licenses, zoning, economic development, police protection, sanitation and trash collection, and the District's annual budget.
The ANCs present their positions and recommendations on issues to various District government agencies, the Executive Branch, and the Council.
Ward 1 has four ANCs. Each ANC has 5-12 members, called Commissioners, who each represent a Single Member District (SMD).
