City Council FINAL Decision Meeting on
In-N-Out Burger Application
Tuesday, October 15 @ 7:30 PM
Campbell City Hall

PLAN ON ATTENDING!

Planning Commission DENIES
In-N-Out
Application

The contentious midnight Planning Commission vote on September 10 was 2-2 which is an effective denial of the In-N-Out Burger proposal. In-N-Out has reportedly appealed the denial, thus the Campbell City Council will make the final decision. We believe the City Council vote will likely be October 15.

FEIR Response Documents

Following are the Citizens for Sensible Growth (CFSG) and Adams Broadwell FEIR response documents provided to the City of Campbell and the Campbell Planning Commission for the September 10, 2019 Planning Commission meeting on In-N-Out burger.

Final EIR Released
Planning Commission Meeting Scheduled

The City of Campbell released the Final EIR (FEIR) on July 27, 2019. The Planning Commission meeting and vote is scheduled for Tuesday, September 10 at 7:30 PM. PLAN TO ATTEND!

More project information from the City of Campbell here: In-N-Out Project Website

If there is an appeal of the Planning Commission decision to City Council by any party, the process would likely take about 6 weeks, so a City Council meeting on the issue would presumably occur in mid October 2019.

The notice of the Final EIR by the City of Campbell contained the following information:

The Planning Commission will consider the In-N-Out Burger application and the FEIR in a public hearing at its regular meeting of August 27, 2019. Comments on the proposed project may be emailed to danielf@cityofcampbell.com or posted to this public forum. Comment may also be provided verbally at the Planning Commission public hearing, however, due to the anticipated number of speakers, speaking time will likely be limited to 1-2 minutes per individual.

Citizens for Sensible Growth and others will be responding to the Final EIR in writing
and at the Planning Commission meeting.

Good News from Environment Impact Review (EIR) July 24 Public Scoping Meeting

 

The result of the scoping meeting session at Campbell City Hall on Tuesday, July 24 2018 was very favorable to the position of the Citizens for Sensible Growth, which opposes the proposed In-N-Out development at the old Elephant Bar location at Hamilton and Almarida in Campbell.

In addition to a number of residents who voiced their opposition on the basis of traffic congestion, CFSG also provided comment on some of the deficiencies and errors in the Final Traffic Impact Study (TIS). City of Campbell Planning Commission members noted severe congestion issues, citing findings from TIS that predicted Level Of Service (LOS) FAIL (F) at the critical intersection at Salmar and the southbound ramp at Hwy. 17. Traffic hazards, such as weaving, and congestion on city streets and nearby intersections were also raised as serious concerns by Commission members. (See links below to view a video of the Scoping Session meeting.)

PRESS COVERAGE

There was press coverage by KPIX (Channel 5), the Bay Area News Group, and SF Gate – see below for links to these news stories. The KPIX News video from July 26 strongly substantiates our CFSG position regarding traffic congestion and is very worthwhile viewing. The Bay Area News Group article came up a bit short on facts but generally substantiates of our position. There is also a supportive article in SG Gate, although it slightly misrepresents the figures on the City website – analysis of this data shows that 70% of respondents are firmly opposed to the In-N-Out project.
