ANC1B08 means Ward 1, ANC B, District 08. ANC stands for Advisory Neighborhood Commission. Each of D.C.'s 8 Wards is split up into multiple ANCs labeled with a letter: A, B, C, D, E, or F.  Within each ANC, there are generally 8 to 12 single member districts making up the ANC, each district elects a representative. Each district is home to roughly 2,000 residents.

The ANC weighs in on matters like zoning, new construction projects, restaraunt/liquor liscences, bus routes. etc. The ANC is also a way to communicate neighborhood feedback to the city. ANC's are advocates amplifying the voices of their residents.
