I live in the Hamann Park neighborhood and work in Campbell, driving past this intersection on my way to work. I absolutely support the In n Out! This will of course increase traffic, but right now the location is vacant and a blight. SOME business is going to be put here, that business will try to serve the public and as many customers as possible, so, traffic is going to increase no matter what. Since traffic will be increasing, we might as well have ready access to tasty and affordable hamburgers, fries, and shakes!

Please permit the In and Out at this location. I live in this neighborhood and I am fine with having this business at this location. They hire a large number employees and are an extremely well run business.

In my opinion, traffic concerns around proposed In & Out Burger are over- blown. Morning commute would be unaffected due to later opening time. Afternoon and evening traffic concerns could be partly mitigated by working with In & Out to make the location bike/pedestrian friendly (well marked green lanes, plenty of bike parking, etc...). I also support the idea of working with In & Out to make this a "non-drive thru location" like they did in Marin. That would certainly address concerns about the drive-thru lane backing out onto Hamilton Avenue.
Certainly there are ways to make this work. Let's find creative solutions to incorporate this successful, well-run family business into our community and take advantage of the jobs and incremental tax revenue it will bring to Campbell (not to mention the tasty Animal Fries)!

Yes, yes, yes! I would love an In-and-Out in Campbell! Campbell is beginning to make a name for itself with our wonderful downtown area. In-and-Out is a great company. The food is awesome and they pay a great wage to their employees. We could bring large revenues to our amazing city! I would be thrilled to have a local In-and-Out! PLEASE!!!

I am a Campbell resident for 2 years now. My wife and I would love to have an In-n-Out Burger restaurant in Campbell. Occasionally, we traveled to other neighbor towns to visit this restaurant, and having one close by would be awesome.
The restaurant will definitely be an attraction for many people, both Campbell residents and non-residents. There are many other fast-food restaurants in the areas, some of which are good, some not so good. In-n-Out is known for its better-quality products, that's why it is so popular when comparing it to other fast-food chains.
Also, I am sure the new restaurant will will create new jobs for Campbell residents too, which is another great advantage.
As for the traffic problems... Cars go in in and out from the "drive through" area slowly. I've never seen a ton of cars entering a drive though of a restaurant, or causing traffic congestion. Cars are slow when going in, or out, especially that they will have to yield to all traffic going on the main road.
Finally, there already was a restaurant in the place where In-n-Out restaurant is planning to be built. Did that restaurant cause major traffic issues to the area? No, it didn't. Yes, In-n-Out may get more visitors. Anyway, I don't think it will have such a major impact on traffic, to prohibit the restaurant from being built there.

Yes, I am in favor of this proposal and look forward to a clean family-oriented place to eat. This will bring much need jobs for our youth. We have plenty of places that cater to younger crowds that also include serving alcohol but not enough places that you can comfortably bring the whole family.

All members of my family are In n Out fans!! Currently we must drive considerable distance - Sunnyvale, Mountain View or South San Jose - money that could be spent in Campbell!!
The stats posted regarding drive thru' queue, parking and seating appear quite substantial and appropriately planned for this property. While I understand the concerns regarding traffic, any business going into this location is bound to generate traffic and it seems logical to approve one such as In n Out that will bring substantial tax revenue to Campbell.

I am a Campbell resident and would love to see an In and Out burger in Campbell. I usually have to driver to the In and Out on Coleman Avenue close to the airport and I regularly take my kids there so having a location closer to home would be very helpful. I think the proposed space where Elephant bar used to be is a good location and it looks like it would work great for a commercial setting like an In and Out burger. I am in favor of opening an In and Out at this location. In and Out delivers consistently good food at an affordable price and their locations are always busy and a success because they run their business so well.
