Result n/a
Whereas The Palo Duro Lounge is a great resource to students and members of the Arlington community; and
Whereas During certain times of the day, the sun constantly glares into the space through the windows of the Palo Duro Lounge; and
Whereas This not only makes some areas of the lounge rather hot and uncomfortable but also creates a glare on the screens of devices that students are utilizing for studying; and
Whereas This takes away from the usability of the space and leaves an uncomfortable environment for studying and members of the Arlington community.
Be It Further Resolved That The University of Texas at Arlington seek the means to add a “Sun Shade” feature to the windows to help reduce the direct heat of the sun and glare that often enters the Palo Duro Lounge.
