The Village of Poynette is in southwestern Columbia County.  The Village's proximity to the Madison metro area and good transportation access provides an opportunity for people to live in a small village, while being able to commute easily to the Madison or Portage areas for work, shopping and entertainment.

Residents enjoy a "small-town" atmosphere of quiet neighborhoods, natural areas, local businesses and job opportunities, and a historic downtown.  The Village is also nestled in a spectacular rural landscape surrounded by rolling hills, woods, creeks, and agricultural lands.  

​Village of Poynette Vision

The future economic and community health of Poynette is directly linked to the preservation of natural resources and small-town and rural character.  Preservation and enhancement of these assets through comprehensive, coordinated planning - along with the cooperative implementation of economic development initiatives - will ensure a continued high quality of life.
