As a longtime Campbell resident, I live right off of Hamilton avenue--about .5 miles from that intersection. Hamilton traffic in general has gotten significantly worse over the years. That particular stretch is already a nightmare (especially if you want to get to the freeway on-ramps, or if you are trying to get any business in the Kohls shopping center). While I very much love In n Out, and would be happy to see it come to Campbell--I am very much AGAINST that particular location. The amount of activity it will generate (both inside and Drive through business) will make that area unbearable -- and I would guess it would also impact the other surrounding businesses. I do not take providing feedback like this lightly--I believe strongly in businesses and growth--but having lived in this area for a long time, I know the problems a very busy In-n-Out may cause, and do not think those consequences are worth allowing use of that location at this time. Thank you.

We do not need another burger place or anymore traffic congestion than is already at this intersection. Please consider something else!

In-n-out Burger is a quality, well run chain. I currently have to drive to Sunnyvale or San Jose to visit one of their stores. The proposed site does have a traffic problem, but one fast food restaurant is not going to cause gridlock. I would very much like ro see this project approved.

I'm against a fast food restaurant that serves a SAD diet (Standard American Diet). We don't need anymore restaurants serving unhealthy food. There is already enough of those in the area: KFC, McDonalds, Burger King, The Habit, the new Steak & Shake place going in. We need healthy food. I would like to see a restaurant like Veggie Grill, or Cafe Gratitude or something along those lines.

I live down the street from there in downtown Campbell, this is not a good idea. All my thoughts have already been said here. It sounds like a good idea to those who don't live that close to the area, but those living nearby would suffer ! A family restaurant is a better idea. Someone said a Mexican restaurant should be there, I can agree to that!

I live on Harrison Ave. between Hamilton and downtown. This area already has a lot of traffic. I have serious concerns about the traffic and environmental impact to this area. I want strong businesses and revenue for our City but these two areas need expert opinion and study.

I don't believe there is a need for an In & Out Burger. We already have many restaurants in downtown Campbell, The Pruneyard & Santana Row as well as numerous fast food restaurants on Hamilton & Winchester. In addition, we do not need more traffic on Hamilton Ave. It's bad enough the 17/880 Hamilton Exit is quite dangerous when the traffic builds up. I vote "NO" to In & Out, for those reasons.

One of the downsides of moving to Campbell from farther north was no longer having an In-N-Out Burger nearby. I'm a big fan of their food and an admirer of their business ethics. Having a location right here in town would be wonderful!

An In-and-Out Burger will cause even more traffic congestion than there already is especially with a drive through window. I have witnessed major traffic jams at other facilities where cars form long waiting lines and the employees actually walk up to cars to take orders to keep customers happy. It is already a mess when attempting to pull onto Almirada Dr. from Bed Bath and Beyond, Paneras, etc. when we are only allowed to make a left hand turn. It is common knowledge that often people attempt to run the light at Hamilton and Almirada but end up blocking the intersection. PLEASE BLOCK THE PERMIT FOR IN & OUT BURGERS.

As someone who lives directly behind the former Elephant Bar property, I'm incredibly worried about an In-N-Out going in at that location. Even though Elephant Bar was open late and sometime got a crowd of late night revelers, the fact that the back of the building was empty and quiet made a nice buffer for the apartment buildings on the other side. Judging by how small the location is, I'm sure the parking and drive-through traffic would come directly up against the fence to the apartment building property and any hope for a quiet buffer between the business and the adjacent residences would be a distant memory. I'm really concerned about the noise and traffic that a high-volume drive-through business would bring to this quiet corner.
Furthermore, as it has been stated many times already in this forum, that location is far too small for an In-N-Out. Go to any location in the area and you'll see a much larger location that is still choked with traffic. This just seems like a horrible location for an In-N-Out.
Sadly, if In-N-Out moves in here, my family will probably move.
