Our Community

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.
