Pattonville
Pattonville after the Termination of Garrison.
The former DoD housing area Pattonville was incorporated into the townships of Remseck and Kornwestheim in 1993. (Overall withdrawal from the larger Stuttgart area in the mid 90ties:  ca 10.000 members of the military forces or dependent persons. Remaining total ca 4.000.) - Best available figures.

Pattonville, before and after
The new 'state cabin' street names are a compromise of sorts. Common yardsticks are hard to come by. (Middle East Peace Accord names were chosen for the Burgholzhof extension at Robinson Barracks.)  Municipal boundaries in red.

Old core substance, blueprint hauntingly familiar. One building holds one company, old reckoning. Should have made aerial reconnaissance fairly easy at the time. The dormer windows are a standard feature. Favored lecture room location. (A spare key rather helpful if you need alternative sleeping quarters. Sometime adviseable.)
"that's how I remember it."

Still old core substance but more thoroughly revamped.
[For the billboard segue, see the building with the tractor in front.]

Core substance, fenced plots. The balconies will be a recent addition. The former Wehrmacht style did tend towards the austere.

The chapel is still all denominational (within reason).

Pattonville, Elementary School
No change in function. (Just a different set of teachers. The imprinted mind will survive it.)-
The concrete looks hardly Panama Canal grade.

Under construction. The smell of wet concrete still pervades the area. - Probably picked that up from a third party brochure. As long as it is half way appropriate.

Brand new track and field facility. - I never found out if the old Pattonville had any swimming facilitis. Would certainly have been in the best Roman tradition. On the economy swimming somewhat out of character.

Country Club. The sprawling golf course dotted with champignons. Might conceivably also be puffballs. There is an easy way to find out. (Some might call it the puffball shuffle.)

Looks like the rear of a cinema (you just have to strip away all those encrouching 'lean-tos' and you will get there). - Map says High School auditorium, so be it.
"that was the HS gym. Movie theatre was next block over."

High time somebody would teach those toothpaste folks from Proctor & Gamble how to spell. [Toothfairy truth: I should probably know how it feels.] There are some swallow nests under the roof overhang to the left. Those aerial acrobats probably share my own ignorance on rappers and their Quechua stage names. (The full form seems to mean 'fiery wyvern'.)

Between duvet day and spring cleaning. Main thing, sun bagging.

Post APO era. The red bordered plaque right beneath the dead end street sign should indicate the distance to the next submersed  hydrant in Cartesian shorthand. - [Do not know how you submerse fire hydrants after a handover. Maybe hydraulic.]

The green bins are for bio-degradable skin of toad, yellow ones for cheese rinds and banana peels. Details in Macbeth.

Mix of solar roof panels (left hand ) and hot water plumbing. Stars and Stripes shorthand: DoD goes 'Dudim'. (The name is derived from a special topknot type of hairdo for elderly ladies. Rather restricted usage, both name and hairdo. Somewhat country specific.)

Closed high noon shutters. Would be careful with that balcony railing. Could be piping hot.

Where did all those school bus type shuttle buses go. ('Lazy hand' type front door opener, non hydraulic.) - Not every housing center did have its own PX so there was a fair amount of shuttle bussing.

Looks like a leftover Arts n Craft shop project [do not like this pic technically, disrupted background, unequal lighting,  but there is a hint of underlying humor. From armored vehicle to rackwagon. All it takes is a special kind of pixie dust. - A national rack wagon day - hard landing - is unlikely.]
