Although I really like In-N-Out, and I'd love to have one nearby, traffic at this location is already out of control, and a drive-through joint would only make it worse. Traffic already backs up onto 17, and the site is too small to allow for adequate parking plus the drive-thru lane. I realize In-N-Out generally locates at freeway exits, but why don't they look elsewhere in Campbell, like maybe the giant lot at Winchester & Payne (the old Safeway lot)?

Please No! In and out causes horrific traffic at every drive through they own. Hamilton and 17 exit is already a problem, imagine how much worse it would become all because people need their hamburgers with spread. There is an In and Out a few more exits up on Coleman,.go there if you truly must divulge in your animal style cravings.

I do not see how the In & Out can make the traffic work for this location. Traffic exiting South 17 onto west Hamilton is terrible now! Many people who want to go to Home Depot clog up the exit waiting to go across three lanes of traffic. A simple sign telling motorist's to go straight and enter Home Depot from Salmar would help clear this up. Drive thru traffic will only make this worse by significantly backing up traffic onto 17. This is a terrible location if for only this reason alone. How is the City going to deal with the thousands of extra cars exiting the freeway stacking up to go one block to In & Out

The proposed project simply won't and can't work out at this location. It is already close to grid lock at that intersection with Home Depot, Kohl's, Beds Baths and Beyond plus the smaller retails all feeding on to Hamilton Ave., very close to the Freeway exits and entrances along with Fry's and the short block signal at Salmar. The surrounding neighborhoods on Harrison, Central, etc. to the south and the N. Central, Almarida Ave. to the north would be caught in a traffic nightmare that would extend all the way to Winchester during commute and school start and stop times.

I disagree to have in-n-out burger at Elephant bar location. First, we already have enough fast food joints in that 1 to 2 miles radius. I like in-n-out burger but it doesn't have to be right in front of my house. Second, have you seen any in-n-out burger with only 10 parking spaces? The traffic congestion is easily predictable in this matter. Not to mention with only BBB and Kohl's, have already jamed up the right lane during the traffic time. Imagine the city major hwy exit takes longer time to get off, compared to others, just a matter of time, ppl will go other cities to get what they need.
In-n-out burger may bring more revenue from other city folks (not within Campbell) but the cost of traffic deadlocks, more police patrols may not justify the best interests for Campbell residents.

I am in favor of this development. In-N-Out has a good reputation for how it treats its employees. That, and the quality of its products, will be a positive addition to Campbell.

Yes - I want this in my city of Campbell!
It will bring needed tax revenue and people from nearby cities which also helps create $$ for Campbell. The money can be used to improve the roads and infrastructure.
Bringing more businesses to Campbell also helps with Jobs. It's a win in my book.

I think it's a great idea. All the InNOut burger places I've been to manage the traffic well so that the lines stay within the parking lots. Good to generate taxes from a business than leave it empty.

I enjoy the burgers but oppose the In-N-Out location as it will:
1. add significant traffic (and likely accidents) to an already burdened and complicated intersection
2. increase late night / early morning traffic/pedestrians through 1am; current businesses in area are open no later than 10pm (same as Elephant Bar)
3. increase traffic through residential neighborhood directly behind the business accessed by Almarida and N Central Ave; this is already an issue with cars zooming through to bypass Hamilton
I'd like the city to keep Campbell family-friendly and be more selective about the types of businesses it brings in. A business similar to Elephant Bar (a restaurant open until 10pm) makes sense but opening a fast food location open until late night greatly cheapens the city's image and impacts those who live here. Fast food businesses should be limited to the Winchester corridor which is a major thoroughfare which can handle such businesses.

Too much traffic congestion already in the area. Do not allow In-N-Out to set up shop on the old Elephant Bar lot. Find them a more appropriate location. I am against the proposed In-N-Out Burger at this location. Traffic would be a total nightmare! That intersection is already very congested. This development would turn it into a parking lot.
