Over a three month period leading up to FitCity 10, the design team worked with NYCHA to analyze the two case study sites, identify key challenges, and develop preliminary strategies for improving general health and well-being at Betances I and IV through the repurposing and redesign of available and in many cases underused open space. The results of this work was then presented at the FitCity 10 Conference to serve as a springboard for two collaborative work sessions, each of which brought together a diverse array of attendees from the public sector, the private sector, non-profit organizations, and community representatives. During the morning FitCity workshop, participants were challenged to consider the possibility of introducing gardens, food production, and composting into the Betances I and IV sites. In the afternoon session, participants were prompted to consider how active recreation uses could be incorporated on-site. Participants were broken up into groups of ten, and multiple wide-ranging—and at times passionate—small-group design charrettes followed.
