I know I live just outside the city boundary, but I travel through these intersections on a daily basis. This intersection & and the nearby 880 exit/Fry’s & Home Intersection are already graded a D- (I would give it an F based on my daily commute.) according to a study from 2 years ago: We all know the problem has gotten worse sine then. Yes, traffic will continue to increase, but why make it much worse by adding a business that generates 3,000 cars a day! If you really want to understand the problem look online at the traffic problems caused by In- N-Out in other cities.

How many burger places does Campbell need. There is Brown Chicken Brown Cow, The Habit, Moe's, The Burger Lounge-all close in proximity. I suspect Steak and Shake failed because of a myriad of better choices. The traffic mess having In and Out on Hamilton is not worth another hamburger restaurant.

Just to echo what so many others have said, I do not support building an In-N-Out with a drive-through at this location. Navigating that area with traffic coming off 17 is already tricky, and I worry that the popularity of In-N-Out will cause spillover into the street.
That is my only objection - I would be in favor of this proposal if In-N-Out amended it to remove the drive-through.

While I love In-and-Out Burger I don't think a drive thru at the location would be good. It would cause a ton of traffic. There is already a lot with Home Depot and Knob’s. Think we already have a dedicate lane that gets backed onto 17 if you add In-and-Out Burger it will be nightmare.
If In-and-Out Burger is to go there, it needs to be a sit in restaurant only.

I am in support of having an In and Out Burger in the location of the old Elephant Bar and Grill. I hope you can start construction as soon as possible as the state of the abandoned building is rapidly declining with graphiti and overgrown weeds and becoming an eyesore for the community!

The Bascom/Hamilton area is full of abandoned buildings and in desperate need of improvements. It seems like the local residents would rather see vacancies or massage parlors rather than growth, because of "traffic". The abandoned Elephant Bar is one of the eye sores that would be greatly improved. The area is larger and less trafficked than the space In-n-Out Occupies on El Camino in Mountain View which does not cause collateral impact.
Looking forward to this and all the future business openings.

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.

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.

I am not a Campbell resident, I live just beyond in West San Jose, but I am a frequent user of the Hamilton off-ramp. Ninety percent of the time a driver heading West on Hamilton dangerously cuts me off while trying to get to Kohls or Bed, Bath and Beyond as I am travelling in the right lane. If an In n Out was located on the same street, I believe 1) the traffic exiting from 17 would back up significantly and 2) we would see a significant number of traffic accidents due to drivers dodging into the right lane to access In n Out. Anyone who drives that off-ramp can easily foresee that problem. I am all for In n Out in Campbell or West San Jose...but someplace like Westgate (especially the Walmart side which has less traffic) would be ideal. Plus it would route more business into the area as more people would have easier access to Westgate and El Paseo. Not a great deal for Campbell taxes (I believe both malls are in San Jose) but it would be a much safer option for drivers in the area as well as residents and public safety officers who would be impacted by the increased traffic and accidents.

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.
