ANC TIPS | Office of Attorney General legal opinions to Advisory Neighborhood Commissions


Go HERE to search legal opinions to Advisory Neighborhood Commissions.
From the DC Office of Attorney General website.


Created in 1976, Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs) provide community-based input to urban policy makers on issues ranging from zoning, economic development, police protection, and traffic to street improvements, sanitation and trash collection, parking, and recreation. Since that time, in response to requests from ANCs, the Office of the Attorney General has rendered legal interpretations of statutes concerning or affecting a wide range of issues regarding Advisory Neighborhood Commissions.  
Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs) statutes, issues, and legal documents are now available online to the public, Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners, District agency officials, and anyone with Internet access. 
The documents, written by the Office of the Attorney General, provide guidance on many issues that ANCs have faced since the commissions were established. Commissioners now have easy access to important and recurring questions on the daily operations and governance of their ANCs. Agency officials also may use this research tool to obtain ANC input on matters such as zoning issues, traffic patterns, and street improvements. Anyone who wishes to contest the award of a grant or the notice for a meeting can access the standards for these events and determine whether a challenge may have merit.
Note: The ANC law has been amended many times. The information in some materials may be obsolete; be sure to check the most recent correspondence.
