ACWORTH, Ga. -- The Cobb County Commission is expected to consider the appeal of five Kennesaw State University students who may be forced to leave their rental home.

The county planning board has asked the girls to leave the Acworth house they've shared since June. A Cobb ordinance does not allow more than two unrelated adults to live in the same home.

Neighbors have complained about the students parking too many cars on their dead-end street.

Cobb County had previously denied the students' request for an exemption from the unrelated adults ordinance, hence Tuesday's appeal.

Each of the girls pays about $200 a month in rent for the house, compared to two or three times that much for an apartment or campus housing.
