While I believe that In-N-Out is a respectable business and one that fits the standards of a family community such as Campbell, the location choice will make an already horrific traffic situation even worse. The Hamilton/880 section of town is one of the heaviest traffic areas in Santa Clara County. To believe that adding an In-N-Out won't have an impact on traffic is not logical. It reminds me of the plans to extend light rail when the VTA argued that leaving the Hamilton Station at street level wouldn't impact traffic. I'm regularly stuck in traffic jams at the crossing at Campbell Ave downtown where the Light Rail is. Thankfully the PUC made them raise the station. There are several good burger options already right in town and I can think of several businesses that would be great additions instead. I like In-N-Out Burger, but I do not support it going in at the old Elephant Bar location.

I strongly believe that as long as a project/business abides by local zoning and building codes, it should be approved without long delays.
In this case the property has been unused for an extended period of time. It serves as blight in our city and generates almost NO tax revenue for the city.
Traffic in the area is bad. A new business in the area can not make it any worse.

I do not support In-N-Out at this location. Has the city forgotten that 8X8 is moving their headquarters across CA-17 from where In-N-Out wants to build? Our quality of life in this city should not be further impacted by burger joint traffic in a blatantly obvious bad location. And they do not need to be located just off a freeway to be successful. I lived behind the Sunnyvale In-N-Out location for 2 years. That is a very busy restaurant from open to close. I believe the majority of us would not mind having an In-N-Out in Campbell but you probably could not find a worse location not only in Campbell but in the whole south bay area. I'm asking the city council to do the right thing and not allow this project to proceed at this location.

I have read the very through and IMHO complete reason why there shouldn't be an In-Out Burger on Hamilton. I've read some of the comments. But I've yet to see one comment about AIR POLLUTION. If we are so concerned about our environment, then WHY is having hundreds to thousands of cars idling waiting for a burger a good thing? Beyond CO2

This is the worst location for an In-N-Out. Have you ever seen the local news segment on People Behaving Badly getting off the freeway at Hamilton? Imagine that issue growing exponentially. Seriously everyone, are you kidding? Without traffic, Campbell is 10 minutes away from the Coleman Ave In-N-Out. The impact this will have is largely negative, will attract late night rowdy crowds and will heavily impact traffic as well as neighbors. I’m all the way out on this decision.

In n Out is one of the only fast food chains that offers real unadulterated meat in its burgers. Wendy’s is the other one. Those of us who eat Keto or low carb eat at In n Out when we need a quick Meal. Right now we have to Travel to S SAN Jose or Sunnyvale. Please bring them in to CAMPBELL.

The Final EIR shows gross underestimating of vehicles traveling to the newly proposed In-N-Out. Why weren't these numbers corrected? Shouldn't Campbell, CA hold new construction projects up to a high standard? Pang Engineering appears to have made thorough and professional responses to the Draft EIR yet the responses in the Final EIR are lazy and blatantly ignore facts presented. Campbell, CA owes it to the citizens of this great city to provide better answers than "The assessment by Pang Engineering was based on traffic counts at a single point on a single roadway (Hamilton Avenue) and thus is not necessarily reflective of the entire study area" In-N-Out is quite literary being proposed on Hamilton Ave. The City's study grossly under represents the traffic volume in the existing condition and in the proposed condition of the area. That is highly irresponsible and inappropriate for government officials representing it's citizens acting in this manner. I highly recommend the Pang Engineering's study be taken seriously.

I am IN SUPPORT of an In-n-Out restaurant at the proposed location.

I believe In&Out will cause too much traffic in this location. This area is already impossibly clogged each afternoon traveling east on Hamilton. It's completely idiotic to add that level of traffic to this intersection!

As a resident of the east of Bascom area of Campbell I look forward to more restaurant options in this area. Right now we have this location and the former Hooters both vacant as well as many vacancies in the Whole Foods shopping center. Although there will be more traffic due to In ‘n Out, it is only a small increase over the current amount. I support approval of this request.
