An ANC is a non-partisan, neighborhood body made up of locally elected representatives called Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners. Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners serve two-year terms without pay and are elected in November in even-numbered years (e.g. 2016). District law says that agencies cannot take any action that will significantly affect a neighborhood unless they give the affected ANCs 30 days advance notice. This includes zoning, streets, recreation, education, social services, sanitation, planning, safety, budget, and health services. The ANCs may also initiate recommendations for improving city services, conduct neighborhood improvement programs, and monitor resident complaints.
You can find and contact your ANC here: https://dcgis.maps.arcgis.com/apps/instant/lookup/index.html?appid=7f2f9241fa504fa0847f798bdabf24f1
