NEWS: ANC Publishes Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2012

At its January 2013 meeting, the ANC approved the FY 2012 Annual Report submitted by Chairman Will Stephens.  The annual report provides a snapshot of the activities of the ANC from October 2011 through September 2012 — including votes taken, issues discussed, achievements, personnel, staff, and finances.

Particularly interesting are the statistics showing how the ANC voted on regulatory applications (alcohol, public space, zoning, historic preservation) over the course of the year.

DC law requires ANCs to submit annual reports to the Council each year.  At minimum, these required reports must include a breakdown of the ANCs finances and key activities and votes.  The Dupont Circle ANC has in recent years generated annual reports that are meant to serve a broader audience — including new and old residents, businesses, other ANCs, and other community stakeholders.  It is intended to be attractive and easy to read, in addition to being informative.

You can find the FY 2012 Annual Report on our Annual Reports page, along with reports going back to 1976, the first year of the ANCs.

In addition, a PDF of the new FY 2012 Annual Report is available here: FY2012-AnnualReport-FINAL(1-9-2013).

NEWS: Report on ANC 2B & Community Groups Working to Repair & Upgrade the Resource Center

As discussed at the Commission’s recent meetings, representatives from ANC 2B are working with the National Park Service, Dupont Circle Citizens Association, Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets, and others to renew the Commission’s no-rent lease for the Resource Center (9 Dupont Circle NW), to make repairs, and to upgrade the Resource Center to meet more current needs.  Enclosed here is a preliminary report on the plans and work so far.  The Commission will be discussing this project in greater detail at its February 2012 Zoning, Preservation, and Development committee meeting.

UPDATE: The National Park Service has authorized the ANC to submit preliminary documents into its online “compliance” system for initial review and comment.
