I'm extremely excited by the possibility of bringing In N Out to Campbell. I've lived in the area for nearly my entire life and feel that In N Out would be a welcome addition. The proposed location is consistent with the types of locations In N Outs are generally located. I generally find myself driving the extra distance to go to the location near San Jose airport and this additional location would help to reduce my (and those in this area's) driving, reducing both greenhouse gas emissions and traffic.

This is absolutely the wrong place for an In-N-Out Burger. In-N-Out Burger is known for its long drive-thru lines that often back up onto the street, and this area can not support that nor the additional traffic that an In-N-Out Burger would draw. This area is already highly congested with traffic backing up onto the 17 South exit as well as the right turn onto Almarida and on Hamilton itself. The Almarida-Hamilton intersection is also confusing for people--many people overlook the do-not-go-straight sign. More people traveling to this area will not help the situation. This In-N-Out Burger would simply be a nightmare for all the Campbell residents that must pass this intersection everyday to get to work, buy groceries, and take care of other day-to-day activities.

I couldn't be more in favor of this. In-N-Out is a California institution and the southwest South Bay is sorely lacking in an In-N-Out location. While not a Campbell resident, I live off of Bascom near Hamilton, about 1.5 miles from the location. I do agree with some other comments that talk about the potential traffic impact, seeing as that area is already prone to issues. But from my observations, the traffic is only really bad around peak commute times, which don't actually match up with peak times for In-N-Out. I think this would be a fantastic use of the location and I'm already looking forward to it.

The proposal should be given a fair review. Nothing motivates people like anger and oppression to something... Most people will state that In N Out will significantly increase traffic but my guess is that the affect will be insignificant.
If people would realize that they get a dedicated lane coming off of HWY 17 towards the proposed In N Out then the current backup would be significantly reduced right now.
This has the potential to be a "win-win".

This is a great thing, there are not many of these, so anytime they add one closer, it makes it a much easier decision to visit.

I think In-and-Out would be a great addition to Campbell however there needs to be a good traffic plan and this area has significant backups and the additional traffic could be a problem. Entry and exit to the property must be designed properly.

This is not going to help with the congestion that we already have on Hamilton Avenue. A family-friendly sit down restaurant would be much preferable.

This will be a horrible place to put an In-N-Out, I do not have anything about the fast food restaurant my concern is all the traffic we will have on that intersection, it's already bad as it is.

I think the In n Out Burger should be approved because it is a great attraction to have in the community, so many people love this restaurant and no burger place compares. It’s a pain having to go all the way to Newhall or Santa Teresa to get to an In N Out. The only thing that I see some people may think is a con is they’re concerned about it increasing traffic in the area, but realistically there already is some congestion and anything that goes in that location may cause an addition in congestion; that being said I think that it is something that’s worth it and will make a lot of people and residents in the community happy. Also, it could potentially decrease some amounts of congestion on highway 17; as it would mean less people would have to drive a further distance to reach an In n Out Burger. Myself and tons of community members have always said- Campbell would be a much better area if they had an In n Out restaurant! Please please consider the approval for the happiness of us residents, we would love to have something in the area that we truly love and enjoy :) And the taste of their food is definitely worth a tiny bit of congestion if it were to occur!

This location is perfect for a busy restaurant. Where else will we put a popular restaurant? Is there a better location?
The people who are against it- are really against growth and that is bad planning if we don’t change are roads and transportation choices to accommodate growth. Should look at reducing traffic lights and left turns, so making drivers go to next block to make left or U turn. This will allow traffic to flow faster as fewer lights and shorter waiting.
