Development receives initial approval

The Arlington City Council gave initial approval, in a 7-1 vote, to a developer’s request to build a five-story high-density apartment complex and parking garage on the east side of The University of Texas at Arlington, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. The proposed $35 million development, which requires a second council vote, would replace more than 100 aging apartments. Council member Sheri Capehart voted against the project.

UT System tuition talk

A group of students taking their cues from the Occupy movement wants the University of Texas System regents to know they won’t take tuition increases without a fight, the Texas Tribune reported. At a meeting in front of UT’s iconic tower, the students will settle on a final version of a protest document they hope sparks a larger pushback against the growing cost of higher education. The story mentions that UT Arlington will not raise tuition next year.
