I live in the Hamann Park neighborhood, the neighborhood most impacted by this proposal. Putting an In N' Out at this location is a very bad idea for a number of reasons:
First, and most important, this intersection does not even function well as it is currently. I drive through here 2-4 times per day. From 17 North, once turning left on Hamilton, it is very difficult to get all the way over to the right lane to turn right on Almarida. Meanwhile, the majority of cars who have exited off 880 South are trying to get all the way over to the left. It makes for chaos, lots of backed up cars, and annoyed motorists and honking to go along with it. At other times I am on Almarida turning left onto Hamilton, and inevitably there is always someone coming out of Home Depot who drives straight across Hamilton, not seeing the sign that you can't go straight. 2) Trash. My sister lives over a mile from In N Out and finds burger wrappers and drink cups in her yard weekly.
3) Why would Campbell want to bring in yet ANOTHER burger joint? Let's get some diversity. Not to mention, promoting a plethora of burger places isn't environmentally friendly. The production, processing and distribution of meat requires huge outlays of pesticides, fertilizer, fuel, feed and water while releasing greenhouse gases, manure and a range of toxic chemicals into our air and water.
In the Evision Campbell Plan, it states that its goals and values are to promote sustainability, wellness, and health, including access to local, healthy foods and balancing consumption in harmony with the environment. By choosing In N Out, this directly goes against your Envision Plan.
Thank you for your time, Melinda Hecht
