Keywords About: boundary, Advisory Neighborhood Commission, ANC, SMD, WardTaking place at: Washington DC, Ward, District of Columbia, DC, DC GIS, DCGIS Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs) are collections of Single Member Districts (SMDs). ANCs allow input from an advisory board made up of the residents of the neighborhoods directly affected by government action. The ANCs are the body of government with the closest official ties to the people in a neighborhood. 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, usually under rules of procedure specific to those entities. By law, the ANCs may also present their positions to Federal agencies. This data set reflects the boundaries approved by the DC Council in May, 2012, for official 2013 ANCs.ANC’s consider a wide range of policies and programs affecting their neighborhoods. These include traffic, parking, recreation, street improvements, liquor licenses, zoning, economic development, police protection, sanitation and trash collection, and the District’s annual budget.
