MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- The Milledgeville City Council has reached a compromise to a controversial ordinance that pitted the city's many college students and their landlords against other residents in a popular and historic part of town.

The council on Tuesday agreed to a special use for group residences in the historic district, where the city law currently limits the number of unrelated people who may live together in a single-family household to three. Many Georgia College & State University and Georgia Military College students live in the area.

The law has been debated since the city council unanimously passed it a year ago.

Landlords in the district would have to comply with several requirements, including annual inspections and providing one parking space for each occupant.
