The long-term parking limit at Unalaska's Tom Madsen AirportĀ has been reduced from 60 days to 28.

City officials announced the change Friday, citing congestion at the roughly 40-vehicle lot.

"Being that it's so full and cars are staying longer, if we make it 28 days, it gives more people the opportunity to park," said John Days of the Department of Ports and Harbors, which manages the state-owned airport.

Days said the new limit will hopefully strike a balance between providing Unalaskans with enough parking time and keeping cars rotating.
