Anna Haines


Anna Haines’ research and teaching focus on planning and community development from natural resources or environmental perspectives.  Her research has focused on factors that influenced land division in amenity-rich areas of Wisconsin, understanding how zoning codes affect future build-out scenarios, sustainable zoning, and local food clusters.  Her extension work has focused on comprehensive planning and planning implementation tools and techniques, sustainable communities, and property rights issues.  She co-chaired an effort to create a sustainable communities course through the North Central Extension Region and Foundation of Practice.
