ANC1C consists of eight Commissioners who live in the community and are elected by their neighbors to serve without pay for two-year terms.  The Commissioners vote on local matters affecting Adams Morgan residents, and District government agencies are required to give “great weight” to votes taken by the Commission.  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.

Envision Adams Morgan

Envision Adams Morgan came about in the spring of 2012 in response to the rapid changes in development in the Adams Morgan. A committed group began meeting regularly with the Public Services and Environment Committee of the ANC1C to develop an overall vision of Adams Morgan that would serve as a both a reference and a guide for understanding Adams Morgan’s present and its future.  A baseline report was created by volunteer residents in 2013 with the support of an urban planning team from Catholic University.  

       
In the first phase of Envision Adams Morgan, volunteer working groups developed a report detailing the current state of the neighborhood.  Envision Adams Morgan then launched a survey to collect opinions and ideas from residents and local businesses in the areas of sustainability, housing, economy, transportation, community services, zoning, and historic preservation.  
       
Between September 2014 and February 2015, Envision Adams Morgan collected 535 responses and over 900 written suggestions concerning the future of the neighborhood. Survey respondents were self-selecting and responses were not tracked or weighted by demographics. These results should be interpreted accordingly and considered reflective of the views of only those who participated in the survey. Nevertheless, those who did participate shared some excellent and constructive ideas.  
       
The results of this survey have been passed along to the DC Office of Planning, which is conducting the next, more formal phase of this process. The DC Office of Planning has set up a website to run polls and collect even more ideas (http://adamsmorganvision.mindmixer.com/), held a half-day community workshop on February 28th at Marie Reed Elementary School to obtain additional community input, and developed a Neighborhood Profile.
 
On Wednesday, September 30th, the Office of Planning (OP) hosted a community open house for the Adams Morgan Vision Framework at Marie Reed Elementary School. The purpose of the open house was to provide an opportunity for the public to view the draft goals and recommendations and for OP to take any additional feedback before issuing a draft document. OP released the Adams Morgan Vision Framework document on Monday, November 9. The document can be viewed at  http://planning.dc.gov/sites/default/files/dc/sites/op/publication/attachments/DRAFT_AdamsMorganVisionFramework.pdf .
 
Release of the Adams Morgan Vision Framework commences a 30-day public comment period for neighborhood stakeholders to provide feedback. All comments must be submitted via e-mail to  joshua.silver@dc.gov. In an effort to accommodate the ANC’s January 2016 committee and February 2016 full commission meeting schedules, OP has accepted the ANC’s request to extend the comment deadline for an additional 60 days from December 8, 2015. The public comment period will now be open until 5:00 p.m. Monday, February 8, 2016. 
 
Thank you for continuing to share your vision with us!
