Lower the parking decal rates back to a more reasonable price

This is important because for many students who work to put themselves through college can not afford $350. In some cases that may be an entire pay check. In addition as The University of Massachusetts Lowell adds more housing for students they would expect more revenue from parking anyway. In the last 4 years the cost of parking has more than doubled. It is ridiculous how students are now expected to pay more for everything: books, tuition, fees, housing, and now parking. Seriously, when is this going to end. I hope UMass Lowell knows that someday we as students would like to be out of debt, and they are not helping.
