We are probably the only city who has fully funded their PERS liability. I have nothing but confidence for you, as our current Mayor and the council. The handling of the CV Link is just one of many things the council has handled in what I feel was an appropriate manner. As for ln-N -O ut, I am in favor of it. I have lived at Lake Mirage for just over 18 years and as an independent bookkeeper do a bit of driving. A quick drive thru ln -N-Out would be wonderful for lunch. Also great for our first responders to grab a quick bite at. The Las Palmas shopping center desperately needs new blood and people from other areas driving in for a burger may find things they hadn't realized were there and those other store may get new customers. I have faith the city will do what is best for the majority and not the minority.

My dental office was established in Rancho Las Palmas Shopping Center in 1994 and I remain in this location today. I plan on attending the Planning Commission meeting today but have to leave at 2:45 and so I am submitting this letter of support. I fully support the application of ln"N Out to locate in this shopping center . . )in the 25 years of being in this location I have seen the evolution of this shopping center from vibrant and fully occupied in the 1990's to a failed , nearly vacant center in 2015. 1 Today we are becoming a vibrant member of the Rancho Mirage business community again , and this application is a great opportunity to fully complete and return this Center to its optimum potential. . This is after all, a Shopping Center as it was originally planned . Its intent is to draw customers to its anchor stores as well ' ·\.as its food and service tenants. Shoppers come to take advantage of all of the services offered as intended . ' In N Out will be a great complement to Rancho Las Palmas Shopping Center and will help in fulfilling the intent of the Center's original purpose for serving the Rancho Mirage Community. I have every confidence that our professional planning and administrative staff will guide this project to a smooth and successful completion . Sincerely, Robert Karl Jr. DDS , MPH 2 DearTed I live about 4 blocks from this location on Mirage Road at 71586. Caprice and I support the zone change and building permit approval. A couple of points- Businesses in RM fund many of our services and amenities ... we try to spend money in RM for this reason. We favor building out and occupied space in both the River and Rancho las Palmas .... see above. Workers have to travel a good distance for an economical lunch and to some extent traffic may be improved . Finally, a small matter .. I hope that the store is encouraged to manage their litter as that is a chronic issue with some fast food locations. Please enter our comments in the record and in support of approval. Again, thank you and all of the council for making RM the very best community in valley!!! We support you and the council.

I have lived in Rancho Mirage at other locations since 2012. I consider Rancho Mirage to be one of the best cities in the Coachella Valley, being central to the Valley and in the neighborhood of Eisenhower Medical Center. I am writing to show my full support for opening an ln -N-Out Burger location in the Rancho Las Palmas shopping center. Being a resident of Rancho Mirage for many years, I have seen, and still see, vacant commercial openings at the Rancho Las Palmas shopping center and at The River. I fully support adding any business to either location that promotes new business and would help add commercial customers to existing businesses there. I know there are opposing views on the subject. However, the location is at a shopping center. It is at a commercial business location. ln-N -Out Burger is a successful franchise. I don't understand why Rancho Mirage wouldn't jump at the chance to add such a successful business to an existing commercial shopping center. That's the intent of having a shopping center. I hope the Planning Commission will approve moving forward to allow the ln-N-Out Burger location to proceed. If I weren't still working full time, I would attend the Thursday meeting in person to show my support. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend in person.

October 3, 2019 Chairman and Members of the City Council City of Rancho Mirage 69825 CA-111 Rancho Mirage, CA 92270 Mr. Chairman and Councilors, I am Francis A. Wong and reside at 77327 Chocolate Mountain Road, Indian Wells, CA. Because of a previous engagement I am unable to attend in person today but would like to submit this letter in support the application ofln-N Out Berger. I am the chairman and CEO of Genesis Hotel Development LLC, which for the past two years have been a consultant to Oasis Ranch in its development of its plans for Rancho Mirage Country Club. As some of you know, we did most of the financial engineering, costing and proforma work after much community research. I have also served as the chairman of both the planning and architectural committee and the planning commission of the City of Indian wells. While not a resident of Rancho Mirage, I know the City well through our work with Oasis Ranch and being a resident of the Valley for almost 20 years. I urge that the Commission support the application ofln-N Out since the project is will be an asset to the community. It has been said that "Success breeds success". I an1 confident that through its market research In-N Out is convinced that Las Palmas is the right location for them and its track record of being in successful locations speaks for itself. Its success will translate to more business for the other tenants at Las Palmas and the area, which will insure that there will be a critical mass of retail and restaurants and your residents will have good choices. In closing, I would like to share a personal story. My brother, Jerry, a restauranteur, is relocating from North Dakota and is looking for a restaurant site in the Valley. He is now revisiting a location in Las Palmas because ofln-N out. He wants to be part of their success! Thank you and God Bless! fully Submitted, ~-+--J-....___,_.....,...,-c cis A.

I vote in favor of the In and Out project. I visit several In and outs in the Sacramento area, specifically Folsom, a city of 60000 where I live and the unit is just off the freeway 50, and a main thoroughfare . Traffic is not an issue, nor is noise. I also go to one in the Arden Arcade area of Sacramento, and steps are always taken to keep traffic moving and from backing up. An attendant is outside at busy times to take orders, rain or shine, and down here it does not rain too much. The place will benefit all hotels in addition to residents. I talked to a woman yesterday who called me from iFlorida, who told me that she had been to California once a few months ago, and had her first In and Out Burger and loved it This happened while I was driving to the unit on Varner Road. True story. There are xenophobes everywhere, and the NOs are always louder than the YESes .. The location is great for shoppers at Westfield or at Desert Crossing as well as locals and folks at the Omni and ritz Carlton hotels among others. and so I vote yes to approve the project. Mark C Jacobs 1 September 10, 2019 City of Rancho Mirage Members of the Rancho Mirage Planning Commission 69-825 Highway 111 Rancho Mirage, CA 92270 RECEIVED CI TY OF P;\:iC;l(J h'': '.f:~ 19 SEP I I PM 12 : 58 SUBJECT: HOMEOWNER IN FAVOR OF IN-N-OUT BURGER PERMIT APPLICATIONS Honorable Members of the Planning Commission, My name is Steven Ross and I am a year round resident of the City of Rancho Mirage. I reside at 27 Padron Way in the Rancho Las Palmas Country Club community. The project site is adjacent to our community. I am in favor of the proposed project because I believe it will be a welcome addition to our city, providing a quality product in a suitable location, along with attendant tax revenues. Beyond that, ln-N-Out Burger is an icon of California culture and a wildly popular brand. At a Mccallum Theater performance last season Broadway star Kristen Chenowith marched on stage with her ln-N-Out soda cup held high to a roar of applause. Friends who return to California after an absence brag that their first stop after the airport is ln-N-Out. We are fortunate to be able to add this brand to the fabric of our community. I'm afraid the criticism of this project by some of my neighbors is misguided. Allegations are made with no factual support. Traffic, economic and other analysis provided to the city adequately addresses these topics in my view. Your staff should be commended for the rigorous review of this proposal. The environmental documentation, zone change, development agreement and site plan have all been handled thoroughly and professionally. Thank you for your consideration. Steven W. Ross 27 Padron Way Rancho Mirage, CA 92270 5-289 Brandini Enterprises, Inc. 42250 Bob Hope Drive Rancho Mirage, Ca To whom it may concern, 19 SEP -9 PM ~: 06 I am writing on behalf of Brandini Toffee and the neighboring businesses, whom are all stakeholders in the upcoming decision to bring ln-N-Out Burger to the Rancho Las Palmas shopping center. I am in zealous support for this to pass and cannot express enough the importance of this for our shopping center and for the city. For what it's worth, here is my rational as to why bringing ln-N -Out Burger into the Rancho Las Palmas shopping center should have unanimous support: 1. Location -It is no stretch to say that Rancho Mirage should be proud that ln -N-Out Burger has chosen this site . There have been rumors for years of an additional location coming to town and every city but Rancho Mirage was anticipated to be the winner. This is an opportunity any other city would do a backflip for. Residents and visitors of Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Palm Springs, and Cathedral City drive 1 O+ miles to cut their ln -N-Out cravings . Geographically, this location would become the most accessible ln-N -Out in the greater Palm Springs area . It is a timeless landmark like this that will attract inter-city traffic and benefit surrounding businesses in Rancho Mirage. 2. Insurance for the future -We are one of the few tenants that survived the dark time of this shopping center. 5 short years ago this center was bank-owned and had not much more to offer than a CVS, Wells Fargo, and a massage parlor. The current owners of this center took a huge risk to bring it back to life and have done a great job with the revitalization. Regardless of this, the future is not certain . Tenant turnover started over a year ago and an anchor like ln-N-Out burger would be insurance that the growth momentum does not slow down. Take a pole of who anchors this center and odds are the answer will be Starbucks. Starbucks might not be the biggest tenant, but they are the most powerful brand. Without a doubt ln-N-Out would be an even larger magnet for traffic and future leasing. 3. Brand Equity-This is something ln -N-Out Burger and Rancho Mirage have greatly in common. It is a truth universally acknowledged that both institutions strive to be the gold standard in their respected industry. At face value ln-N -Out is considered fast food, but any fan will plea that they are far from it. ln-N -Out has a cult-like following that is admired worldwide. Their focus on safety, quality, and defending their brand makes them the juggernaut in their industry. Rancho Mirage should rest assured that the exchange of brand equit y will only be in their benefit should this opportunity come to fruition. I am aware of several subjective rebuttals to this opportunity and I hope the planning commission can listen to their instincts when making a decision. My business and many others joining in on this conversation have great incentive to see this shopping center thrive and see only upside to welcoming ln-N-Out Burger to the the Rancho Las Palmas community.

One of our offices was located at the corner of Frank Sinatra and Highway 111. I also volunteered and served on 22 community boards and committees while running the bank. I still volunteer on three local boards after many years of retirement (Mccallum Theatre, Palm Springs Art Museum, and Literary Society of the Desert) because I strongly believe we all have to do whatever we can to help our community. However, I know fully well how difficult it is to manage a successful, four-season business in this still "part- time" affluent community. When I was was recently approached by a local business owner friend to write to you indicating my support for a new IN-N -O UT franchise in the Las Palmas Shopping Center, I enthusiastically agreed in the affirmative. It is totally ridiculous some of our Rancho Mirage neighbors are objecting to this new business to be located in an already existing small shopping center. What do think or want to rent these spaces -personal residences?! I think it is fantastic a business as well known (and managed) as IN-N-OUT wants to locate in Rancho Mirage -what a compliment to our city!! As our Planning Commission representatives, please support this new and exciting addition to Rancho Mirage . It is imperative we all join in to welcome this type of franchise, when something this terrific presents itself to us.

I hope this can be shared with others in planning. I regretfully will be out of town and unable to attend the meeting Thursday. Best Regards, Brandon Weimer Brandini Toffee (760) 702-5576 1 5-294 Brandini Enterprises, Inc. 42250 Bob Hope Drive Rancho Mirage, Ca To whom it may concern , I am writing on behalf of Brandini Toffee and the neighboring businesses, whom are all stakeholders in the upcoming decision to bring ln -N-Out Burger to the Rancho Las Palmas shopping center. I am in zealous support for this to pass and cannot express enough the importance of this for our shopping center and for the city. For what it's worth, here is my rational as to why bringing ln-N -Out Burger into the Rancho Las Palmas shopping center should have unanimous support: 1. Location-It is no stretch to say that Rancho Mirage should be proud that ln -N-Out Burger has chosen this site. There have been rumors for years of an additional location coming to town and every city but Rancho Mirage was anticipated to be the winner. This is an opportunity any other city would do a backflip for. Residents and visitors of Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Palm Springs, and Cathedral City drive 1 O+ miles to cut their ln -N-Out cravings. Geographically, this location would become the most accessible ln-N -Out in the greater Palm Springs area. It is a timeless landmark like this that will attract inter-city traffic and benefit surrounding businesses in Rancho Mirage. 2. Insurance for the future -We are one of the few tenants that survived the dark time of this shopping center. 5 short years ago this center was bank-owned and had not much more to offer than a CVS, Wells Fargo, and a massage parlor. The current owners of this center took a huge risk to bring it back to life and have done a great job with the revitalization. Regardless of this, the future is not certain. Tenant turnover started over a year ago and an anchor like ln-N -Out burger would be insurance that the growth momentum does not slow down. Take a pole of who anchors this center and odds are the answer will be Starbucks. Starbucks might not be the biggest tenant, but they are the most powerful brand. Without a doubt ln-N -Out would be an even larger magnet for traffic and future leasing. 3. Brand Equity-This is something ln -N-Out Burger and Rancho Mirage have greatly in common. It is a truth universally acknowledged that both institutions strive to be the gold standard in their respected industry. At face value ln -N-Out is considered fast food, but any fan will plea that they are far from it. ln-N-Out has a cult-like following that is admired worldwide. Their focus on safety, quality, and defending their brand makes them the juggernaut in their industry. Rancho Mirage should rest assured that the exchange of brand equity will only be in their benefit should this opportunity come to fruition. I am aware of several subjective rebuttals to this opportunity and I hope the planning commission can listen to their instincts when making a decision . My business and many others joining in on this conversation have great incentive to see this shopping center thrive and see only upside to welcoming ln-N -Out Burger to the the Rancho Las Palmas community.

I have been an ln-N-Out customer for 27 years. Having our commercially zoned properties occupied and producing revenue is in the best interest of our city . The concern of some that this establishment will bring thugs, thieves, pedal-to -the -metal street racers, and litterbugs to our community is a complete misconception and insult to not only ln-N -Out Burger's loyal customers, but also to our amazing local law enforcement who I trust fully to handle any matters that may arise due to potential additional traffic. Via a local neighborhood internet message board, I heard concerns of additional traffic that residents on Magnesia Fa lls Dr and Joshua Rd . have . I believe a few homeowners who live in that grid created a hype in the community that resulted in an overreaction and fear based on an exaggerated idea of the unknown impact it will truly have . I believe that most people will use Hwy 111 as their main access to the site (not the suggested "short cuts" through Joshua Rd.). When Johnny Rockets (a hamburger joint) went in at the former Ruby's location, no one complained of any "smells" or traffic concerns. ln -N-Out Burger is a family oriented business (no alcohol is served there) and I can't wait to have it walking distance to my home.

I have lived in Rancho Mirage at other locations since 2012. I consider Rancho Mirage to be one of the best cities in the Coachella Valley , being central to the Valley and in the neighborhood of Eisenhower Medical Center. I am writing to show my full support for opening an In-N-Out Burger location in the Rancho Las Palmas shopping center. Being a resident of Rancho Mirage for many years, I have seen, and still see , vacant commercial openings at the Rancho Las Palmas shopping center and at The River. I fully support adding any business to either location that promotes new business and would help add commercial customers to existing businesses there. I know there are opposing views on the subject. However, the location is at a shopping center. It is at a commercial business location. In-N-Out Burger is a successful franchise. I don't understand why Rancho Mirage wouldn't jump at the chance to add such a successful business to an existing commercial shopping center. That's the intent of having a shopping center. I hope the Planning Commission will approve moving forward to allow the In-N-Out Burger location to proceed. If I weren't still working full time , I would attend the Thursday mee ting in person to show my support. Unfortunately , I am unable to attend in person. Thank you for your consideration.

Im reading the negativity from a few people over and over again, that makes it seam like a lot of people want to undermine the proposed business . I really don't understand this kind of thinking. I heard nothing when 5 Guys went into the River complex, and don't think they are doing too well, I never see them very busy . I think it's a great company to have in our community. They are busy and I have not seen one go out of business. I think it will help give some stability to the center and hopefully with the additional traffic in the center, will bring new businesses . One of the" complaints is the smell it would bring" . We had a chinese restaurant there for years that you could smell food cooking when approaching the restaurant if you were in the center. However, that smell did not permeate the neighborhood. it was right along ! !! not set back more than a row of parking spaces in front from Hwy 111. I live in magnesia falls cove and never smelled anything from Las Pal mas center. Another complaint is traffic, home values and were too good a city to allow such a low class "FAST FOOD" restaurant . Good Lord you would think the sky is falling. there's nothing factual on the Nextdoor website, just several people who are too snooty to have something like a good fast food burger in our community. For me, I am all for it, bring on the revenue for the city and build up a shopping center that has not been 1 5-305 successful in the past 15 or 20 years . I rare ly patronize Las Palmas, not enough there to draw me in. I did however, frequent it years ago when it was thriving. Lets get it thriving again . You will probably hear from nay sayers as they are trying to organize but unfortunately probably not the ones that are fine with it. So I thought I would send a message of support.

I think it is exactly what the area needs! believe they will be a neighborhood friendly business. The revenue generated for the city is certainly a big attraction. For me, it is the jobs it will bring to the area! It will certainly liven up the Las Pal mas shopping center. I also think it will attract other businesses to the shopping center. In my opinion, it will attract new visitors to this area of Rancho Mirage . 1 5-310 I think it is important to enhance this center, and help it grow, especially as The River is dying. ln-n-Out attracts all ages, and people from all walks of life. I also think it has the potential to stimulate interest in the vacant Applebee's. In my opinion, I do not think it will be an eyesore to the surrounding neighbors . With the sunken building pad, it will be partially hidden. I also believe the parking lot is large enough to handle the traffic and the drive thru window. ln-n-Out parking lots and surrounding areas are always clean and well maintained. RM has already done their due diligence on all of this. Our council and planning commission are always very thorough, and do an excellent job of looking at all sides of the equation. I will not be available to attend the upcoming meeting. It is going to be one hot topic, with many strong opinions. Stay strong, fight for this new business! Thank you for all you do.

I am in favor of the In 'N' Out Burger being allowed. While it may cause increased traffic on Magnesia Falls Drive, it is a public road paid for by public taxes and the public has a right to use it. The In 'N' Out in La Quinta has not caused any traffic problems on Highway 111 and I would expect a similar drive -thru design here so as not to cause any traffic delays on the highway. The drive-thru of Starbucks at the same shopping center has not created any litter problems or other problems in our neighborhood. I don't anticipate smells being a problem for residents any more than smells from Old Spaghetti Factory and Wally's or restaurants at The River. It will increase customer traffic to the Rancho Las Pal mas Shopping Center which may draw more businesses to open there. There are currently many vacancies. Also, it will increase revenue to the City and create more employment. I think the positives far outweigh the concerns of increased traffic and possible food smells for the few residents of Magnesia Falls Dr. in closest proximity to the project.

In fact, I confidently express my ideals about the multiple advantages of this famous brand will affect to our shopping center positively regarding several aspects: Business Development Throughout recent years, this shopping center confronts with many obstacles along with unstable economy. However, as the heart of Rancho Mirage city, the location contains a lot of brilliant potentials \ to attract surrounding residents and tourists. In order to stand out of the crowd, In-N-Out Burger will play an important role for developing future business. Las Palmas Shopping Center' reputation With the expectation of bringing more distinguished anchors, the significance of In-N-Out Burger appearance leverage Rancho Las Palma shopping center's reputation. Moreover, we all understand that increasing competitive advantages in business is a key of succeed. Not only that, it helps in creating the vitality of current enterprises due to magnet active traffic. Connecting Community Corporate Social Responsibility is one of the necessary strategies to connect community together. Indeed, the brand name of this entity with quality foods and service is beyond and above consumer satisfaction. Therefore, In-N-Out Burger will strongly participate into improving customer's conveniences . In my viewpoint, Las Palmas Nails & Spa have incentive support to decision of welcoming ln-N-Out Burger as part of our family . With the hope to strike for business success, the presence of this brand will be inevitable.

My dental office was established in Rancho Las Palmas Shopping Center in 1994 and I remain in this location today . I plan on attending the Planning Commission meeting today but have to leave at 2:45 and so I am submitting this letter of support. I fully support the application of ln"N Out to locate in this shopping center. In the 25 years of being in this location I have seen the evolution of this shopping center from vibrant and fully occupied in the 1990's to a failed , nearly vacant center in 2015. Today we are becoming a vibrant member of the Rancho Mirage business community again , and this application is a great opportunity to fully complete and return this Center to its optimum potential. This is after all, a Shopping Center as it was originally planned. Its intent is to draw customers to its anchor stores as well as its food and service tenants. Shoppers come to take advantage of all of the services offered as intended . ln'n'Out will be a great complement to Rancho Las Palmas Shopping Center and will help in fulfilling the intent of the Center's original purpose for serving the Rancho Mirage Community. I have every confidence that our professional planning and administrative staff will guide this project to a smooth and successful completion.

We are Rancho Mirage residents and active, registered voters who support the establishment of an ln - N-Out Burger at Rancho Las Palmas shopping center. It would be a great addition to dining choices within the city . We are very familiar with the proposed location with many visits to Brandini Toffee's original location. The "not in my backyard" complaints from Magnesia Falls residents are bogus . I've never seen cars from Rancho Las Palmas head East on Magnesia Falls as alleged . If the city finds any merit to the argument that cars are heading East on Magnesia Fa lls, then simply add further barriers to prevent such moving violations. The complaining residents would prefer the shopping center return to it's former quiet state, or perhaps be bulldozed altogether and turned into a park, but that's ridiculous! They moved next to a long- standing shopping center. I urge the city to approve more fast food restaurants with drive-thrus in the fu t ure . The reality is that residents don't go to Roy's or some other expensive restaurant every night, and we should have more options for a reasonably priced meal within the city.

I have been following the discussion of In N Out Burger entering the Las Palmas Shopping Center. I believe In N Out would be an asset to our community. Sure, they will create additional traffic for the area but in my opinion the shopping center greatly needs additional traffic. There is not one tenant in the center that is knocking the ball out of the park . The traffic generated by In N Out will have a positive impact on the other tenants in the shopping center and aid in the leasing of the vacancies that exist . I am currently retired, but during my 45 year career, I was the Director of Real Estate for Home Depot, Manager of the Corporate Real Estate Department for Safeway Stores, SVP Real Estate for Payless Drug Stores, Chief Investment Officer for Burnham Pacific Properties, and CEO for National Retail Partners, At National Retail Partners we owned 150 shopping centers located in 14 States. Having a fast food restaurant in a Neighborhood Shopping Center zone is very typical. As a matter of fact, of the 150 shopping centers we owned, not one of them was located in a zone that did not permit the operation of a fast food restaurant. 5-328 I have heard comments made by many in opposition to In N Out. Quite frankly, I have found them to be pretty ridiculous and almost laughable. These people for the most part have no knowledge of the industry and are shooting from the hip with nothing credible to support their statements. My wife and I own one of the more valuable properties in Magnesia Falls Cove, possibly only second to Porcupine Creek. If I felt for a minute that the construction of In N Out would have a net negative impact on the quality of life in our community I would be aggressively objecting to its construction. This is just not the case. I strongly encourage each of you to vote for the construction of In N Out in the Las Palmas Shopping Center. Bricks and mortar retailing is struggling everywhere and it would be in the best interest of this Council to support retailing to help improve the overall quality of life within our City. Thank you.

Weill, a real estate developer who has become the counci l's point person on the project but has no financial stake in it, sa id the electronic poll was sent out Sunday to about 4,000 ema il addresses he's gathered in his desert dealings over the years. By late Monday morning he'd already gotten some feedback that went beyond what he was going after. He sa id he'd gotten about 20 responses back personally, going beyond responding to the multiple choice survey. "Some people wrote back about how we could improve access to the center, they wrote about things with the sidewalks that we hadn 't even thought about , so now those can be incorporated into the plans for the center," he said. -- STORY FROM AMWAY COACHES POLL ASU head coach Herm Edwards on mindset, attitude and the path to success Weill said other respondents are interested in more places to eat. (https://www.usatoday.com/pages/interactives/sponsor- story/ASU-coach-discusses-how-to-teach-a-team-to- execute/) "Most of the responses were about food, whether it's fine dining, whether it 's sandwich shops, whether it be reasonably priced," he said. "And of course, a lot of people wou ld like to see another market go in there." The sprawling plaza at the northeast corner of Highway 111 and Bob Hope Drive, built back in 1979, was once a thriving neighborhood hub but was starting to lo se ground before Vons closed its grocery store there in late 2009 . Since then the vacancy rate has shot up over 50 percent.

The shopp ing center, on Highway 111 betwe en Bob Hope and Magnesia Falls drives, is slow ly coming back to life with 85 percent of its storefronts leased. The dying center was bought out of foreclosure by El Seg undo-ba sed Paragon Commercial Group LLC two years ago for an undisclosed amount of money. Renovations started in early 2015 with the demolition of three buildings at the west end of the center to make way for the new CVS store and allow for add itional access to the center from Highway 111. "Even with the ongoing co nstruction, the new CVS and Ste in Mart are performing beyond projections so it is our expectation that this center will once again quickly become one of the most vibrant shopping destinations in the city of Rancho Mirage," said Jim Dillavou , a principal with Paragon . "The center looks amazing compared to what existed previously. We hope the residents of Rancho Mirage are as excited as we are at this great transformat ion ," he said.

As low as $9.99 per month Demolitiori of the buildings up front has been a key factor in drawing new tenants, because it made more of the center visible from Highway 111, Weill said. He pointed to the Ste in Mart store, which took over the old Vons lo cation. The grocery store left Rancho Las Palmas in 2009, sending the vacancy rate soaring and making CVS the anchor business . "One of the reasons Vons exited is that it was somewhat hidden back there ," Weill said . Relocating CVS to the front of the center has also worked to draw businesses and allowed the drug store to add a drive-thru, he sa id. "That was probably the first major piece of the puzzle to be put together," Weill said. That parcel, valued at about $1 million, was owned by Rancho Mirage, which gave the property to Paragon with the understanding the developer wou ld take care of improvements for curbs , gutters and sidewa lks at no cost to the city, Weill said. "So there was no out-of-pocket outlay by the city," he said.

While normally not a llowed for food-based businesses in Rancho Mirage, ii works for Starbucks because vehicles will enter and ex it within the shopp ing center and not onto Highway 111. It was Starbucks that drew Pieology, he said, because it's a high-traffic business. Founded in 2011, Pieology is a franchise based in Rancho Santa Margarita w ith restaurants nationwide serving pizzas and sa lads made -to-order. Some have likened it to a Subway or Ch ipotl e for pizza where customers go to various stations to choose pi zza crusts, toppings and sauces.

Located at the north end of the shopping center, the salon is a little hard to find as the building 's exterior undergoes renovation. Clients have been confused, thinking the shop is closed, Weber said. "The ce nter is starting to come alive, so that's important," Weber said. "For so many years, it was a dead center. So, I'm trying to be very hopeful knowing it will be all good in the end." Backstage Wigs and Beauty Salon is one of several businesses that have stayed during construction . Some have been relocated to other parts of the center. Brandini Toffee will also be relocating to another part of the center, Dillavou said . When the business moves it will free up the spot at the corner of Magne sia Falls and Highway 111 for another tenant.

There are some new businesses, including a Fox and the Fiddle restaurant that's taking over the former sushi spot with plans to open in the fall at The River, Mayor Pro Tern Weill said. This is the first American location for the Canadian-based eatery, a British style pub that, according to its website, is looking to expand and bring franchises into the United States.

The View from City Hall Councilman Richard Kite gave his "State of the City" update at our Annual Members meeting on April 19. For those of you who couldn't attend, here is a brief summary of his speech. Rancho Mirage is fiscally fit! We are operating a $25 million dollar budget with half of it being used for public services (police and fire) and the other half for special accounts such as building and maintaining property (especially roads) and landscaping. Overall, the budget is focused on those projects that have the biggest impact to our community. Our primary source of revenue continues to be hotel bed tax with The Ritz Carlton being the #1 contributor. Approximately 45% of the revenue comes from sales taxes. The county gets most of the property taxes. What's new in our city? The biggest project is the Observatory that is under construction next to the Rancho Mirage library. We are the only city in California to have an observatory and it is scheduled to open in 2018. Evening hours will be established and you will be able to link into the "sky view" via your own laptop. It will be a truly unique offering both to local residents, schools and visitors. The amphitheater continues to be a success. The dog park was completed. The city is working with developers to begin building Thunderbird Resort and Spa on the land adjacent to City Hall. It will be an exclusive high -end property. The city is also looking at another parcel of land to build an intermediate price range hotel. The Writers Festival continues to have record-breaking attendance at the library and The Art Affaire will be held in the fall. Richard opened up the discussion to questions from our members . One concern voiced is the lack of viable options for high speed internet (other than Spectrum) and a suggestion was given that the city should consider municipal broadband. Richard is happy to have an appointment to discuss the possibilities . Here are answers to a few other questions raised by our members. The Desert Island hotel will be re-branded. In and Out Burger has not formally submitted anything to city hall about locating in the Rancho Las Palmas shopping center so Richard feels it is not likely to happen. The developer may come back with other restaurants interested in locating to this prime property. Construction will begin in the fall for Del Webb residential community near the Agua Caliente Resort. There will be no golf course and it is anticipated the average sales price will be approximately $400,000. It is always a pleasure to have Richard share the updates and his insights on our beautiful city of Rancho Mirage. From Anne's notes about Bucy's presentation: These are my notes about Bucy's response about what might be considered for the Las Palmas Shopping Center. He said that they were looking for a "fine dining restaurant", but these were the only possibilities he had at the time. None of them were acceptable to the residents, especially the In & Out Burger.

Eric Caplan Rancho Mirage, CA ln -N-Out Burgers has been granted a Conditional Use Permit to build a new drive through restaurant in the Rancho Las Palmas Shopping Center (the corner of Highway 111 and Magnesia Falls). Please consider the following if this project is allowed : 1) The resulting increase in traffic on Joshua and Magnesia Falls (for example , students from the College of the Desert and residents in large the 1 5-337 apartment complex on Parkview will take Joshua to Magnesia as a short cut throughout the day). 2) Increase in late night traffic on Joshua and Magnesia Falls (ln-N-Out closes at 1 :00 a.m . 7 days a week). 3) The environmental impact report prepared by ln-N-Out cla ims there will be an average of 754 daily visits using the drive through . This will lead to more congestion on Highway 111 as well as Magnesia and Joshua which are used as a short cut. 4) Speeding on Joshua and to a lesser degree , on Magnesia Falls -this is a safety issue ; it's already a problem. 5) Increase in crime due to the greater car and foot traffic -this is already a problem in our neighborhood. 6) Additional trash is certain to be an issue by careless patrons taking a short cut through the neighborhood.

I understand that some notices were previously sent to home owners in the area - I was not one of them . In fact, I am not aware of any of my immediate neighbors receiving notification. I, and my neighbors on Magnesia, Joshua, Desert, Barbara and Rancho will be directly and adversely affected. I have written a letter I am sending today that summarizes my concerns and plan on attending the September 12 meeting. A summary of my concerns are as follows : 1) The resulting increase in traffic on Joshua and Magnesia Falls (for example, students from the College of the Desert will undoubtedly take Parkview to Joshua to Magnesia as a short cut during the lunch hour). 2) Increase in late night traffic on Joshua and Magnesia Falls {ln -N-Out closes at 1:00 a.m .) 3) Speeding on Joshua and to a lesser degree, on Magnesia Falls -this is a safety issue . 4) Failure of drivers to stop at the stop sign located at the corner of Joshua and Magnes ia -again, a safety issue (it is already problematic). 1 5-339 5) Probable increase in crime due to the greater traffic -it literally takes less than a minute for someone to stop their car, jump out and grab something from an open garage. 6) Trash blows down Magnesia -undoubtedly there will be more with a fast food establishment. I strongly encourage the Commiss ion to reevaluate constructing any type of fast food establishment with a drive through at 42 -560 Bob Hope Drive.

My wife and I own a home on 72089 Magnesia Falls Dr. in Rancho Mirage. We are located right behind the Goodwill thrift store. The proposed site of the In N Out burger is literally a stones throw away from my front yard. I cannot stress enough how much we are vehemently opposed to having a fast food drive through restaurant in that location. We bought our dream house here 7 years ago with the intention of raising our 2 small children here . The house was a foreclosure and was in disrepair, but had great potential. We scrimped and saved and invested well over a hundred fifty thousand dollars over the course of a few years repairing and making the house beautiful once again. In my opinion its one of the nicer homes now on our street. We have endured the construction project at the Rancho Las Palmas shopping center, the homeless living behind Goodwill, the increased traffic, etc. But that will pale in comparison to the increased problems a fast food drive through will bring to our neighborhood . Traffic increases, noise pollution from the drive through, light pollution from the In N Out signage, the cooking smells, increase in crime from late night patrons, as well as more trash blowing through the neighborhood is a detriment to not only our neighborhood, but to our city and community as well. I cannot even began to imagine how negatively our property values will be affected. Who would want to live where there is a fast food drive restaurant across the street? Not me! And not my neighbors either. Please Mr. Gleim. I'm begging you to reject In N Out's proposal. There are plenty of other more appropriate locations in Rancho Mirage for an In N Out.

During this time, I have seen traffic on Joshua and Magnesia Falls increase significantly including crimes of opportunity. I have had several thefts from my garage during the day when the garage door was open.

I am aware that ln-N-Out Burgers has applied for a permit to build a restaurant with a drive-through on the corner of Magnesia Falls Dr. and Highway 111. I am very much opposed to the location of the proposed restaurant. The reasons for my opposition are as follows: 1) The resulting increase in traffic on Joshua and Magnesia Falls (for example, students from the College of the Desert will undoubtedly take Parkview to Joshua to Magnesia as a short cut during the lunch hour). 2) Increase in late night traffic on Joshua and Magnesia Falls (ln-N-Out closes at 1:00 a.m .) 3) Speeding on Joshua and to a lesser degree, on Magnesia Falls -this is a safety issue. 4) Failure of drivers to stop at the stop sign located at the corner of Joshua and Magnesia -again, a safety issue (it is already problematic). 5) Probable increase in crime due to the greater traffic -it literally takes less than a minute for someone to stop their car, jump out and grab something from an open garage. 6) Trash blows down Magnesia -undoubtedly there will be more with a fast food establishment.

It is the second residential lot on Magnesia Falls and will be directly and significantly negatively affected by the proposed In-N-Out Burgers Restaurant and drive-through in the Rancho Las Palmas Shopping Center at 42-560 Bob Hope Drive. We just received the Public Hearing Notice last Friday September 6, which is the first notice we've received for this proposed project. Because we live out of town and may not be able to attend the meeting this coming Thursday September 12, we are submitting this letter in advance. We ask that it be added to the objections presented at the meeting and taken into consideration by the Planning Commission when it makes its decision . We also ask that it be included in the written record for this proposed project so that the objections contained herein can be considered on appeal, if necessary. OBJECTIONS A. The Proposed ln-N-Out Burgers and Drive-Through Should Not Be Classified as (::ategorically Exempt Under CEOA as Categorical Exemptions are Construed Strictlv and the Proposed Project Will Have a Significant Effect on the Environment Thereby Disqualifving it from the Exemption. We object to the proposed project being classified as categorically exempt under CEQA Section 15332/In-Fill Development Projects. As stated in the discussion for Section 15332, categorical exemptions for infill projects do not apply to projects that result in any significant traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality effects. This is also the case under CEQA Section 15300.2 (a)(Location) and (c)(SignificantEffect). InMcOueen v. Mid-Peninsula Regional Open Space (1988) 202 Cal. App. 3d 1136, the court reiterated that categorical e..umptions are construed strictly, shall not be unreasonably expended beyond their terms, and may not be used where there is 1 5-346 Sep 10 19 , 02:52a p .2 substantial evidence that there are unusual circumstances (including fature activities) resulting in (or ·which might reasonably result in) significant impacts which threaten the environment. Categorical exemptions to CEQA are to be construed strictly. Just because the proposed project is an in-fill project does not mean that it is automatically exempt from CEQA and that is the case here, where the proposed In-N-Out Burgers Restaurant and Drive-Through would have a significant impact on traffic, noise, and air quality . Thus, it does not qualify for the in-fill exemption. The City's attempt to sneak this project through ""i.thout any type of CEQA environmental review is an abdication of its duty to plan for the general welfare of Rancho Mirage and the environment. Without a review of the facts discovered through an environmental review, it is difficult to know what the environmental impact of the In -N-Out will be. However, it is clear that allowing the construction of an extremely busy fast food restaurant and drive-through immediately adjacent to a low-density/high-end residential neighborhood will have negative environmental impacts. A quick Internet search revealed many articles about In-N-Out's drive-through and traffic . Here are a few: A 2016 Los Angeles Magazine article entitled, "In-N-Out Drive-Thru Lines Are A Menace." In it, the author states, "They're too long and cars leak out in the street and block traffic and cause accidents .... " https://www.lamag.com/digestblog/n-drive-thru-lines-public-menace- heres-can-stopped/ Another article entitled "Ranking In-N-Out Locations Based On Their Drive-Thru Lines." According to the author, some In-N-Outs have drive-thru wait times of 30-40 minutes . (See attached.) https://,vwv.r.complex .com/pop-culture/2014/05/in-n-out-drive-thru-lines/ The 2018 QSR Drive-Thru Study that drive-thrus are busier than ever with 70 percent of their sales being made at the drive-thru window and that average speed-of-service times have largely sloll·ed across the board among the major players with an average of234 seconds between the time an order is placed and received . (See attached.) https://www.qsm1agazine .com/reports/20l8-qsr-drive-thru-studv An article from 1996 saying that drive-thrus are the new pariahs and cities have begun to ban them or place restrictions on the hours a drive-thru window can operate. "Drive-Thrus Run Into Roadblocks ." https ://wvvw.Jatimes . com/archives/la-xpm-1996-11 -11-mn-63627-story .html With these long drive-through lines and wait times, significant negative environmental effects are to be expected and a CEQA review is mandated. Significant negative impacts include, but are not limited to: 1. Significant negative impact on traffic on the adjacent streets and neighborhoods as the drive-through line extends beyond the parking lot and into the streets as cars wait on Magnesia Falls and Bob Hope to turn left into the parking lot. This will negatively impact Magnesia Falls residents attempting to leave their homes, who will now be required to sit in traffic just to leave the 5-347 2 Sep 1019, 02 :52a neighborhood. It will also cause an increased number of accidents with vehicles and potentially pedestrians. 2 . Significant negative impact on traffic on Magnesia Falls as cars drive from Palm p.3 Desert through the residential neighborhood as a shortcut to ln-N-Out. Given In-N-Out's popularity among youth, teen drivers will be commonplace. Teen drivers are known by the state to be unsafe drivers due to their cell phone use, texting, high rate of distraction, and speed . Significantly increasing traffic by hundreds, if not thousands of cars, through a residential neighborhood is dangerous and creates a risk of harm to residents and their children. 3 . Significant negative impact on traffic on Highway l 11, Bob Hope, and Magnesia Falls which will impact all Rancho Mirage residents and tourists and businesses nearby as people avoid places like Rancho Las Palmas and The River because they don't want to get stuck in traffic. This could also cause inadequate emergency access. 4 . Significant negative impact on air pollution, vibration, and heat from cars idling in line for extended periods of time (up to 40 minutes or more until one in the morning). The increase in pollution and decrease in air quality would also have a negative impact on any children or adults with allergies, asthma, and other sensitivities. 5. Significant negative impact on noise pollution from multiple car engines, car stereos, the amplified voice at the order window, orders being called over speakers, and a large increase in the number of people in the area, teenage loitering, panhandling, and talking outside . During the few hours In-N-Out is closed in the morning, large, noisy, delivery trucks, possibly eighteen- wheelers, would deliver food . It would create a substantial increase in ambient noise levels in the project vicinity, especially in the quiet neighborhood of l\llagnesia Falls. 6. The proposed project with its signage, lights, and car headlights would create a new source of substantial light or glare, which would be a continuing nuisance to the residents around the project. It would also create light pollution, thereby damaging the view of the night sky . The aesthetics of the area would be negatively impacted, the character ofthe neighborhood changed, and the likelihood of graffiti increased . 7 . In-N-Out is known for producing a very strong and distinct smell of hamburgers and onions grilling, which is an objectionable odor when present every day from ten in the morning until one at night. This smell will permeate the neighborhood, is noxious to all, and is even more so to vegan and vegetarian people. Wind direction should be considered. 8. The proposed restaurant and drive-through is also in conflict with the l and-use plan currently in place and the desired reputation of the city. According to the Mayor's statement on the Rancho Mirage website, Rancho Mirage is know as the "Playground of the Presidents and has hosted US Presidents, foreign royalty and has been home to countless Hollywood and sports celebrities . It is the desert oasis for vacation destinations, business owners, retreats, and conferences." 5-348 3 Sep 10 19, 02:52a p.4 The Magnesia Falls neighborhood impacted by the In-N-Out has homes valued upward of one million dollars. This is not the neighborhood for a busy fast food restaurant and drive-through which would negatively impact property values. Additionally, there is an jnherent conflict between allowing a project of this sort, which would attract hundreds of people and cars every day until the wee hours of the morning, and the city's rental home ordinance, ·which places significant restrictions on short-term rentals in Rancho Mirage. What is the point of limiting the number of people, cars, and noise coming from one house when the city is considering allowing hundreds of people and cars ,,vith stereos to visit a fast food restaurant and drive-through every day located just a hundred feet from a residential neighborhood? The rental home ref,•1Jlations seem much more in keeping with the vision for Rancho Mirage than the In-N-Out. 9 . Another significant negative impact would be the increase in litter from fast food wrappers and trash . The increased level of food waste could also cause an increase in rats, roaches, flies, and other vermin and pests, which would negatively affect the surrounding residential neighborhood. 10. All of the negative impacts will be compounded by the fact In-N-Out is open until from 10 a.m. until 1:00 a.m. every single day. This is incompatible with the residential neighborhood directly across the street where families live and sleep and will cause a substantial adverse effect on the people who live in the Magnesia Falls neighborhood. An environmental assessment must be completed as additional significant facts and information may come to light, which would cause other significant negative impacts. This project does not qualify for the in-fill exception. Likewise, it does not qualify for a conditional use permit B. A Conditional Use Permit Should Not Be Granted Because The Negative Effects of the Proposed In-N-Out Burgers and Drive-Through Fail to Outweigh The Public Need For and Benefits From the Proposed Use Under Rancho Mirage Municipal Code 17.48.010. To grant a conditional use permit, the public need for and benefit from the project must outweigh the negative effects. Here, the reverse is true and the negative effects win. There is no public need for an In-N-Out, nor a benefit from it. If people want a fast food hamburger, there are many choices nearby, including a Five Guys right across the street at the River. There are many other fast food restaurants within a few miles, including many that offer hamburgers . In fact, there are two other In-N-Outs within a short distance. One located at 72265 Varner Road (6 miles away) and another at 78611 Highway 111 (7 miles away). Perhaps most importantly, though, is the fact that the Rancho Mirage Planning Commission and City Council should be looking out for the benefit of the Rancho Mirage residents. According to city-data.com, the median resident age in Rancho Mirage is 66. 7 years of age. This is quite a bit higher than the California median age of 36.4 years. While I was unable to find the median age of In-N-Out customers, I suspect that it is quite a bit younger than 66.7 years. While there may be many youth in the desert that would like to have an In-N-Out in Rancho Mirage, it seems questionable that those youth are actually residents of Rancho Mirage. It would 5-349 4 Sep 10 19, 02 :53a seem that most residents of Rancho Mirage do not eat at In-N-Out as they are not the target customer. p .5 As discussed at length above, and incorporated here by reference, there are many negative impacts from placing a very busy fast food restaurant immediately adjacent to a low density/high end residential neighborhood. These negative effects are significant and outweigh any imaginable need or benefit. C . A Conditional Use Permit Should Not Be Granted Under Rancho 1\-Iirage Municipal Code Section 17.48.060 Because the Required Findings Cannot be Made. For ease of reading and brevity, all of the ar guments set forth above are hereby incorporated by reference for each of the arguments below. 1. A Conditional Use Permit Should Not Be Granted Because the Proposed Use would Impair the Integrity and Character of the Subject Zoning District. Rancho Mirage prides itself on being an oasis in the desert, the playground of presidents. It is not a city of fast food or drive-throughs_ Likewise, Rancho Las Palmas Shopping Center has always been a small neighborhood commercial area consisting of a few walk-in restaurants, a market, a drugstore, medical office space, and the like. Allowing an In-N-Out in this district, immediately across the street from a residential neighborhood would indeed impair the integrity and character of not only Rancho Las Palmas, but also Magnesia Falls, and even the River, which has nice restaurants and seeks an upscale crowd. The In-N-Out does not belong . In-N-Outs are generally placed near freeways in areas that are completely commercial. 2. A Conditional Use Permit Should Not Be Granted Because the Design, Location, Size, and Operating Characteristics of the Proposed Use are Not Compatible With the Existing and Future Land Uses and Would Create Significant Noise, Traffic, and Other Conditions or Situations That Are Objectionable or Detrimental to Other Allowed Uses Operating Nearby and Are Adverse to the Public Interest, Health, Safety, Convenience, and Welfare of the City. For all the reasons discussed herein, In-N-Out is simply not compatible with the existing uses surrounding the proposed location. The residences in the Magnesia Falls area have been there for decades . It is a low-key, quiet, family neighborhood. The Magnesia Falls neighborhood is only a hundred feet or so from the proposed In-N-Out which will service hundreds, if not thousands, of people and cars a day, and be open fifteen hours a day, every day of the year, until one in the morning. Allowing an In-N-Out would completely change the make-up and character of the area in a negative fashion . Instead of improving the reputation of the city, this would reduce it. An In-N-Out would also r educe the property values of homes in the surrounding areas . As a matter of fact, we had someone make an off er to purchase our lot, however, that offer is currently off the table due to the proposed In-N-Out and we have suffered damages because of it. Our longstanding plan was to build a million dollar home on our lot. However, that is also off the table due to the current proposal. 5 5-350 Sep 10 19, 02:53a p .6 As discussed above, there is no question the In-N-Out will generate significant noise, traffic, and other conditions or situations that are objectionable or detrimental to the residential neighborhood nearby and are adverse to the public interest, health, safety, convenience and welfare of the city. In fact, with the exception of a nightclub or bar that would be open until 2 a.m., it's hard to imagine any project that would create more significant noise, traffic, smells, and other objectionable or detrimental conditions until so late at night. The conditional use permit should not be granted. 3. A Conditional Use Permit Should Not Be Granted Because the Subject Site is Not Physically Suitable for the Type and Intensity of the Use Being Proposed. In addition to the reasons above, t.li.e Rancho Las Palmas Shopping Center currently has two points of entrance and exit -one on Bob Hope and one on Magnesia Falls. To enter the shopping center from Bob Hope requires a left hand tum. This enter the shopping center from Magnesia Falls also requires a left hand turn. It is not easy to enter Rancho Las Palmas under the best of circumstances due to the configuration of the entrances and exits and Rancho Las Pal mas is certainly not physically suitable for a busy drive-through restaurant with Jong lines of cars and significant traffic. The last business in this location was a Brandini Toffee, which was a low-impact business run by two local businessmen. An In-N-Out is too intense for the proposed location . It belongs somewhere else more suitable . 4. A Conditional Use Permit Shou]d Not Be Granted Because There Are Not Adequate Provisions for Public Access and Sanitation and the Proposed Use Would Be Detrimental to Public Health and Safety. For all the reasons above, public access to this property in the amount being requested is simply not adequate. As discussed in the article referenced above, "In-N-Out Drive-Thru Lines Are a Menace," the lines can actually cause car accidents or endanger the residents of the Magnesia Falls neighborhood. The In-N-Out traffic can also endanger the other people frequenting Rancho Las Pa1mas. 5. A Conditional Use Permit Should Not Be Granted Because the Proposed Project Has Not Been Reviewed in Compliance with CEQA and Should Be as Required By Law Because it Would Have Potential Significant Negative Effects Upon Environmental Quality and Natural Resources That Would Not be Properly Mitigated and Monitored Unless Findings Are Made in Compliance with CEQA. For all the reasons above, the City's failure to comply with CEQA and conduct any type of environmental review so that negative effects can be mitigated and monitored, the CUP cannot be granted. The City needs to fulfill its duty to the public and comply with the requirements of CEQA instead of hiding behind an exception that doesn't apply. 5-351 6 Sep 10 19 , 02 :54a p .7 CONCLUSION Overall, the In-N-Out will have a substantial adverse effect and negative impact on the residents of Rancho Mirage, especially those who live in the Magnesia Falls neighborhood. While many people enjoy a double-double on occasion, living in a cloud of greasy hamburger fumes and idling cars every day of every week from 10 in the morning until 1 am at night is not acceptable for anyone. In-N-Outs are generally located near freeways or in areas that are I 00% commercial on all sides. They are not placed in neighborhoods. for a reason -they don 't belong there. This is not a good fit, CEQA has not been followed (and it must be before the project can even be considered), and the CUP for In-N-Out should be denied . With that being said, the City should recognize that there are a multitude of other restaurants and stores that could be placed in that location that would not impact the area negatively . Such a business would not have a drive-through, would operate during hours that would be more compatible with the residential neighborhood, would have low lighting and no smell, and would have a much lesser impact on traffic and the surrounding environment . They would also be more in keeping with the upscale character of Rancho Mirage. 7 5-352 Jeremy Gleim, AICP From: Sent: To: Cc: Subject: Attachments: Linda Hall <l hall@jagibbs.com > Monday, September 09, 2019 3:11 PM Majna Duk ie Joseph Gibbs CUP Case Number 19007 20190909 Memornadum to City of Rancho Mirage.pdf Attached please find a Memorandum of today's date from Joseph A .

Gibbs September 9, 2019 CUP Case Number: 19007 Preliminary Development Plan Applicant: In-N-Out Burger The purpose of this Memorandum is to place the City of Rancho Mirage on written notice that I have strong objections to the proposed plan to allow the construction of an In-N-Out Burger fast food restaurant within the City of Rancho Mirage. I have been a full time resident of the City of Rancho Mirage for over 25 years. My law firm maintains an office in the City of Rancho Mirage. Note the following points: 1) The fast food restaurant is inconsistent with the image that the City is attempting to promote; 2) Only a very small percentage of citizens within the City of Rancho Mirage will benefit from this kind of business; 3) More traffic, more congestion and more noise will result from the operation of this kind of business; and 4) Allowing this kind of use within the City limits will make it that much easier for national fast food chains to open restaurants within the City of Rancho Mirage. 41 -750 Rancho Las Palmas Drive, Suite B-1, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270 Phone 760 .77 9.1 790 I Fax 760 .7 79 .1780 I E-mail jag@ jagi b bs.com I Web www.jagibbs.com 5-354 Jeremy Gleim, AICP From: Sent: To: Cc: Subject: Jeremy Gleim, AICP Wednesday, September 11 , 2019 10:28 AM Majna Dukie Isaiah Hagerman , CPA FW: Rancho Mirage In -out Burger Bob Hope Jeremy Gleim, AICP Development Services Director Phone : 760-328-2266 Ext . 262 E-mai l: jeremyg@RanchoMirageCA.gov 69-825 Highway 111 , Rancho Mirage , California, 92270 www.RanchoMirageCa .gov ---------------------TRANSPARENCY NOTICE Some or all of the content of this e-mail and its attachments may be subject to disclosure pursuant to the California Public Records Act (Government Code section 6250, et seq .)

We will be out oftown during the meeting on Thursday, September 12, regarding the construction of an ln -N-Out Burger at the corner of Highway 111 and Magnesia Falls. We were horrified to find out about this proposed project, and want to express our objection in the strongest terms. We can't think of a worse locat ion for an ln -N-Out Burger. ln -N-Out Burgers are notorious for their long lines of customers waiting for service, which often extend out into the street . Magnesia Falls is already a problematic street for residents of our neighborhood . For example, returning home from the shopping center, it is not possible to turn left on Magnesia Falls, one must turn right and then take Highway 111 and Parkview, a more indirect route . We can scarcely conceive of the traffic problems with an ln-N-Out Burger at that location. And the only alternative to Magnesia Falls for entering and exiting the neighborhood, which is via Parkview, is also a problem, due to the high speed traffic on Parkview . We would also like to question the claim that there will be an average of 754 visits a day. From what we have seen of ln- N-Out Burgers, that number seems low. Is ln-N -Out Burger low balling this figure? We suspect they are. Again, we object to this project in the strongest terms.

We love our neighborhood. Unfortunately we have seen our neighborhood crime and traffic increase considerably over the years . I do understand some of that comes from the natural growth of our city. However, to consider building an ln-N-Out burger near what is already one of the busiest intersections of the city (Bob Hope & 111) doesn't make a lot of sense (unless of course your ln -N-Out Burger) in addition to the 754 vehicles that will be added to the already congested traffic, a lot of that traffic will be taking a short cut through our neighborhood! There is already an excessive amount of traffic and speeding that happens on Joshua and Magnesia Falls and now you're considering adding to this problem. Along with the additional vehicle traffic, this will bring additional foot traffic, additional littering and the potential for additional crime . Not just during normal working hours but throughout the night until lam in the morning! I urge you to not put the ln -N-Out at this loca tion. I'm sure there are many suitable locations that would work out well for ln-N-Out Burger that would not negatively impact a neighborhood . Sincerely, Scott & Cindy Sohn 72397 Rancho rd.

But at what cost? I'm sure you've heard from somebody named Jim Elliott in Magnesia Falls Cove, as well as countless others . As Mr. Elliott points out, this is a terrible idea for numerous reasons, not the least of which is RM's longstanding aversion to "drive-through" businesses. We were told that the only reason Starbucks is allowed a drive-through window is because it "inherited" a window from a previous business in the same location. (I don't know if this is true or not; it's simply what others have told us.} But anyone who has seen the cars in the Starbucks drive through during any one of their rush hours will tell you it is a nuisance. To me, it underscores a bigger problem and that is how we see ourselves as a community. When I moved here I didn't expect RM to be like El Paseo -I knew that was for Palm Desert, not us . But I didn't expect us to become Cathedral City o r Thousand Palms, either. El Paseo can have Saks, Tiffany, 1 5-362 Gucci, Brooks Brothers, etc., but I guess Rancho Mirage sees itself as more Hobby Lobby, Stein Mart and In-and-Out Burger. What a shame. We may not get the tax revenue from an expensive purchase at Gucci, but at least we'll get it from a 95C hamburger. A year or so ago I sent a list to one of our city council members in which I suggested several new up-and- coming businesses I'd discovered in my travels -each of which would have made an excellent addition to the Las Palmas Shopping Center OR The River. Naturally I never heard anything back, but I see there are still lots of vacancies at both properties. Frankly, I'm shocked that In-and-Out Burger isn't smart enough to know this is a terrible location. Unlike most of their locations, this one will get strong and steady pushback from nearby neighbors. There. Aren't you glad you asked for my opinions? Sorry to rant. It's an old man thing. Good luck, Rex John Rancho Mirage 2 5-363 Jeremy Gleim, AICP From: Sent: To: Cc: Subject: Jeremy Gleim, AICP Sunday, September 08, 2019 8:45 AM Majna Dukie Isaiah Hagerman, CPA Fwd: In & Out Burger Sent from my iPhone Jeremy Gleim, AICP Development Services Director Phone : 760-328-2266 Ext. 262 E-mai l: jeremyg@RanchoMirageCA.gov 69-825 Highway 111, Rancho Mirage, California, 92270 www .RanchoMirageCa .gov TRANSPARENCY NOTICE Some or all of the content of this e-mail and its attachments may be subject to disclosure pursuant to the California Public Records Act (Government Code section 6250, et seq .)

Our home is located at 72377 Magnesia Falls Dr., in the direct path of eventual customers that will use Waze or Google to find a short cut from Park View Dr. via Joshua St. While we enjoy a hamburger as much as anyone , we cannot support a massive increase in through traffic on our now relatively quiet residential street. I support a free market, but this decision to install a very popular burger joint at the end of our street is misguided at best. The increased traffic and pedestrians wandering around the neighborhood will be intolerable. As a group, we are very concerned that our property values will suffer and eventually will to take the steps necessary to recover this cost. We would appreciate that the Planning Commission put itself in our shoes with the imposition of extra traffic and the associated bad elements this new business will attract to our quiet neighborhood . 5-368 Short-term rentals are bad -this is worse .

Over the years with the closing of Barbara, Rancho and Desert Drives at Highway 111 and significant remodeling and new residential construction we have become a quality low traffic neighborhood.

There is no question in my mind that there will be increased crime, noise, trash and traffic congestion in our otherwise peaceful neighborhood .

We are already annoyed at the the traffic noise behind our property on Park View dr. Cars fly up and down at high speed disregarding the speed limit. We recently listed our house due to the noise but had little interest due to the road noise which was the only complaint. The thought of having probably the most popular fast food restaurant close will only make this problem worse. Regardless of what happens with the ln -N-Out the speed limit needs to be lowered and speed bumps installed to cut down on the noise on Park View. Thank you for your consideration since this is a major problem.

Here are my concerns. People(foot and bicycle traffic)and cars taking a short cut using Magnesia Falls Drive and Joshua. Maybe close off the road with a wall so it's not possible? If the traffic increases on Joshua so will the accidents . There's a lot of bicycle and foot traffic there and no real designated safe route. There's a partial sidewalk and a big blind area. It could be me walking my dog or cycling. Lawsuits will follow. There's a residential street within a hundred yards or so from the proposed site. No one wants that in their front yard. Especially with the huge amount of traffic it will bring. It will be nuts! There are probably better locations in Rancho Mirage but aren't a vacant pad. Please don't throw our neighborhood under the bus. Not only do we live here but our business is here too. Our neighborhood already has enough issues with vacation rentals so much so that it's becoming a virtual hotel here. Please save our neighborhood for those that live here and don't let the dollar signs of tax revenue cloud your judgement and leave our nice neighborhood to plummet.

Studies have shown heavy traffic near residential tend to reduce property values. Increased l ight pollution coming from any fast food location also concerns be greatly. I am hoping the City of Rancho Mirage will explore other poss i ble locations that would be closer to the existing industrial areas near Interstate 10? I believe that would be an appropriate location for an In and Out Burger.

The issues I believe warrant further consideration is the traffic on Joshua and Magnesia as well as that area of 111. Environmental issues with more cars idling waiting in line as well as at traffic signals close by. Our air quality already suffers. I hope there are other areas that can be offered to them that doesn't require cars to use residential streets to get to the fast food restaurant. The possible increase in crime and litter is also a concern . I moved here (Magnesia Falls Cove) over 30 years ago. I have seen many changes during this time-mostly positive. One thing that has always been impressive is the "fast food" businesses have been kept away from 111 allowing small businesses. Not only has this policy allowed small businesses-/restaurants a chance it has kept our city pristine. I hope this policy or whatever has restricted this type business be kept in place or at least keeping businesses of this type away from areas that place a residential community qat risk. Thank you.

The proposed location of the establishment is in a already high traffic congestion area involving Hwy 111, Magnesia Falls road, and Joshua which is already hampered by speeding vehicles (which already has speed bumps) and Bob Hope Drive .. We live at the intersection of Joshua and Magnesia in a gated community which has already been hampered by local crimes from traffic in that area. Though nearby Starbucks and CVS pharmacy do infact have "drive through windows", The volume of traffic which current backs up from local In N Out franchises in La Quinta and Across 1-10 is substantially greater and would likely lead to back up into Magnesia whose angled intersection cannot support. There are significant traffic safety concerns regarding drivers who already make improper crossing turns from Magnesia into the shopping center. The proposed location with only a 2 lane Magnesia cross street will result in traffic backed up into Magnesia street and Hwy 111 . Adding a high volume traffic franchise in this closed angled residentail area will absolutely lead to increased accidents in this area and a danger to pedestrians in the immediate area. Having a franchise open till 1 am in our residential neighborhood will lead to increased trash in the street areas and likely increased crime in the area as well. There already is a nearby lnNOut franchise just down the road on 111 in La Quinta. Consideration should be made for an alternative location in the Cathedral City commercial areas where larger street patterns and 4 lane cross streets could better support the high traffic volume . We must also acknowledge that the placement of a low budget food establishment immediately adjacent to a higher value taxed residential neighborhood will cause a necessary devaluation of property values. AS a neighborhood resident of Rancho Mirage living within imminent traffic and crime impact of this proposed food establishment, I wish to express my strongest objection to permitting construction of this high traffic, low cost food franchise in my neighborhood Respectfully, Guy E Katz 64 White Sun Way, Rancho Mirage gekatz@msn.com Sent from Mail for Windows 10 5-384 Jeremy Gleim, AICP From: Sent: To: Subj e ct: Jackie Moore <jackiemoor@aol.com > Wednesday, September 11 , 2019 4 :51 PM Majna Dukie In-N -Out Burgers(Rancho Las Palmas Shopp i ng Center) Please consider the detrimental effects on ou r families and homes if you allow ln-N-Out Burgers in out neighborhood .

I sincerely hope the City will consider the impact on those of us who expect to be able to have the peaceful life we expect and deserve. The impact on property values warrants looking at by a legal mind . I walk that route to CVS , the bank, etcetera. It is a pretty sure thing that one of us gets hit with the added traffic . I realize that progress is inevitable . There are things that might make the change more livable and financially viable for those of us that will certainly loose property value. Have the City wall and gate our community . Give resident access to the streets with chains and gates. There is a wonderful fountain right there also. Add a turn arrow to get out. Add sidewalks where people turn in to Goodwill and the other direction to shopping area the other direction toward White Sun ; expand the speed bumps around the corner. With the neighborhood open only to residents it solves the problem . If they cannot get out they will not come back that way. With CVS, Starbucks, and 1-N-Out you should put an Officer to enforce the rules for crosswalks. You 'll make money . Add a pedestrian bridge someplace by Goodwillyou will save lives and enhance the community. I hope that someone with your skillset could guide our community not to the commerce in it, but also for those of us that have continued to add value to our community .

This will lead to more congestion on Highway 111 as well as Magnes ia and Joshua which are used as a short cut's . 4) Speeding on Joshua and to a lesser degree , on Magnesia Falls -this is a safety issue ; it's already a problem . 5) Increase in crime due to the greater car and foot traffic -this is already a problem in ou r neighborhood . 6) Additional trash is certain to be an issue by careless patrons taking a short cut through the neighborhood . Do we really want to see a place like this in this quiet community. Our area is a lready getting to be very tourist impacted and this project will only make it worst. When we moved to this community , we we re told fast food restaurants/businesses were not allowed. Believe me ; I enjoy ln-N-Out personally. I hope you will reconsider these facts and at least considering to eliminate the drive-through from the project will keep most of the issues at bay. Since In -and-Out custom cooks each order, the drive-through lines are often extremely long and contribute to congestion in the parking lot.

CUP 19007 City Council Meeting Oct. 3, 2019 Dear Messrs.

Case No. CUP 19007 (the "Proposed Project.''.) .. . -.. . It is our understanding that despite serious concerns raised before the Planning Commission at its hearing held on September 12, 20.19, regarding the Proposed Project's traffic, noise, hours of operation , etc ., it was nevertheless recommendation for approval by the Planning Commission on a vote of 4-0, with one abstention. This decision, apparently, was based upon, in part, the Planning Commission Staff Report's conclusion that Proposed Project " ... would not result in any significant effects relating to traffic, noise, air quality ... . " We are informed that the Proposed Project will be considered by the Rancho Mirage City Council for final approval at its next scheduled meeting on October 3 , 2019 . 5-396 September 26, 2019 Page2 We are concerned on several fronts that a project of this magnitude and impact is being considered without sufficient notice to adjoining homeowners and residents. Most laypersons would find it extremely hard to believe, given the widespread knowledge of the busy and late-night operations of an ln-N -Out fast-food restaurant, that the City Staff believes there would be no significant effects to traffic and noise from the Proposed Project located, as it would be, in one of the busiest intersections in the Coachella Valley . A Proposed Project of this sort will attract hundreds of patrons, and their automobiles, will have adverse impacts every day until the late evening (1 :30 a.m. as we understand it). Since the impact of these potential problems would detrimentally inure to residents of the adjoining neighborhoods it seems very reasonable and fair that those same homeowners be given a reasonable opportunity to both review the Proposed Project and be allowed to provide meaningful input into the Council's consideration before a finaf decision is made. While the City did provide very limited notice to person and entities impacted by the Proposed Project, it appears plainly that notice was not provided to most homeowners who would be significantly impacted by the Proposed Project. Specifically, the City provided notice to surrounding homeowners but we are told that the notice only went to approximately four (4) homes who are situated less than 500' from the Proposed Project. By comparison, there are approximately 120 homes situated in the adjoining Magnesia Falls Development. While the vast majority of these homes do not technically fall within the 500' radius that the City provided notice to, most of these homeowners, including our clients, are intensely interested in, and they and their property values will be impacted by the Proposed Project. Therefore, we believe elementary precepts of due process, i.e. notice, fair play and an opportunity to be heard, are involved here. See, e.g., Horn v. County of Ventura (1979) 24 Cal.3d 604. ln-N-Out has devoted its corporate resources and had considerable time leading up to applying for the Proposed Project. In contrast, impacted residents and homeowners were not, in many cases, even notified of the Proposed Project prior to the September 12, 2019, Planning Commission meeting. Moreover, since receiving notice of the Proposed Project via word-of-mouth, our clients have only recently requested documents from the City p~~!"S!..l-¥1t to x PLJbUc qecords Act ("PRA.") The documents requested pursuant to the PRA may not even be received, let alone reviewed, before the October 3, 2019, City Council meeting. We therefore now respectfully request that the City continue its consideration of the Proposed Project from its October 3, 2019, meeting for at least 60 days until its first December meeting, so as to allow homeowners and residents to review the above documents, consider more thoroughly the impact that the Proposed Project will have on traffic and noise, among other things, and provide additional information for the Council's consideration. The Proposed Project should be approved, or denied, based on its merits.

Aside from the general complaints the Rancho Mirage residents have already posed, you guys at the City of Rancho Mirage are forgetting one thing . Construction. As a General Contractor (we had a B license for 25 years acting as a sub, retired, didn't like it , then went back into the industry under another B license as a Sub), any GC would back me up our statement once building begins "the homeless will come". it doesn't matter how well you secure a building, they break into the buildings under construction sleeping and living in these buildings leaving trash everywhere urinating in them . Property Values Will Be Severely affected making it harder to see our homes Severe Increase In Traffic as the vicinity will be used by everyone from college students, late night partiers, bartenders and servers, kids hanging out late at night which isn't safe , late night foot traffic, and the the homeless as a cut through too In & Out increasing the crime level significantly. As it is stands now our neighbors are getting hit with credit card and identity theft issues breaking into locked mailboxes which will only get worse due to late night foot traffic until 1 :30am . We on th e left side of Barbara h ave problems with people crawling over our back walls and fences which will only get worse. We don't bother to contact the police any longer. T he city won't build allow u s to increase wall and fence height for this purpose and for noise control of people hauling down on Parkview. Why we need "speed bumps" on that street. Not to mention th e mess the CVWD created for this side of our street with the wash that will no longer drain. Every time we get rain storms we have to replace three pool pumps at $900 a piece . All they had to do was drill a little hole with a pie coming out in to the wash in the back of these homes . Unfortunately the pumps have to be lowest part of the property for the th e pumps to prime. This In & Out will cause congestion on 111 causing more accidents . 1 5-399 Not only will our crime increase in our are but w ill trash and transient activity which will cause health issues with trash urination, and defecating on the sidewalks. While we all love In & Out Rancho Nfirages long standing loya l community members concerns takes precedence over a fast food chain that can be relocated to a more suitable location.

There are numerous negative issues that this proposed fast food chain will bring with its establishment in the town of Rancho Mirage . Here is just a few that have been brought to our attention. 1) The resulting increase in traffic on Joshua and Magnesia Falls (for example, students from the College of the Desert and residents in large the apartment complex on Parkview will take Joshua to Magnesia as a short cut throughout the day). 2) Increase in late night traffic on Joshua and Magnesia Falls (ln-N-Out closes at 1 :00 a.m . 7 days a week). 3) The environmental impact report prepared by ln -N-Out claims there will be an average of 754 daily visits using the drive through. This will lead to more congestion on Highway 111 as well as Magnesia and Joshua which are used as a short cut. 4) Speeding on Joshua and to a lesser degree , on Magnesia Falls -this is a safety issue; it's already a problem . 5) Increase in crime due to the greater car and foot traffic -this is already a problem in 1 5-402 our neighborhood. 6) Additional trash is certain to be an issue by careless patrons taking a short cut through the neighborhood. We think it is a positive attribute to live in a town where not everything is welcome particularly a fast food chain that stays open till 1 in the morning in an area where people start the day early and covet their peace and quiet. There is an obesity epidemic in the US. In and Out Burger and other fast food chains are a proven contributing factor. Instead of looking at the tax revenue in the short term more municipalities should think of the long term health impact and limiting this type of "food" option. The public has not been well informed on this matter. We just learned of this project through our NextDoor App . Please do NOT push this through with out proper public input which should require the city officials to make the proposal widely known to their constituents( media , radio , etc. ). Thank you in advance for considering these points.

As my councilman I wanted to write you with a couple thoughts . In my opinion, the proposed location for this iconic fast food chain is a major step in the wrong direction for our city. Rancho Mirage residents have homes roughly 150 feet away . This establishment stays open until 1:30 am. This is not the lifestyle that we have long associated with living here. Traffic cut throughs down Joshua and Magnesia Falls will escalate dramatically further upsetting the lives of this RM neighborhood. As you may recall, I live on Barbara Dr. I am 100% opposed to this location for In N Out. I am actually a huge fan of the business .... just not at the proposed location. What happened to the city ordinance forbidding drive through fast food chains?? I could go on and on .... I hope the city makes the right choice instead of chasing the almighty dollar. 1 5-409 cha r les t @ra nc homi rage.gov , tedw@ranchomirageca.gov Subject: Inn -N-Out Madame Mayor and esteemed Council Members. I was unable to attend the City Council Meeting where discussion was held regarding the proposed ln-N- Out burger location at Rancho Las Pal mas SC. I would like to make my comments below: I have been a Rancho Mirage resident since 2005 residing at 204 Kavenish Drive . I have also been a resident in Thousand Oaks CA and Costa Mesa CA, living close to ln-N-Out locations in both communities. I know ln -N-Out has a loyal following and this will be a tough decision. I am very concerned regarding your possible approval of this location. One of the reasons I chose to live in Rancho Mirage was due to the fact I would not be inundated with fast food drive thru restaurants. If I need a fast food fix, I could always go to Varner Road or Monterey but hwy 111 was free and clear. Living in Thousand Oaks and Costa Mesa (both locations in shopping centers) I observed major congestion as traffic backed up on artery thoroughfares during peak times. With ln -N-Out that's most of the time. In addition ln-N-out (whether done intentionally or just normal operations) puts out a very strong smell of onions. Very enticing, but do you want t his at Rancho Las Palmas SC and the nearby homes. I always considered Rancho Mirage as a very upscale community, similar to Highland Park in the Dallas area . I assure you that Highland Park would never approve an ln-N-out. I know we are all grateful for what the developers have done at Rancho Las Palmas SC but I think another type full service restaurant would be a much better choice for this pad location. I am also worried about the p recedent this location would send to other developers that would want a location on hwy 111 in Rancho Mirage. How could you tun them down without litigation . Please do not just look at the tax revenue or pleasing the Rancho Las Palmas SC owner. Do what you always have and make a decision based on the good for all Rancho Mirage residents. Thank you for allowing my comments to be heard.

We also appreciate that there is more than one point of view on the placement of a fast food drive- through at the corner of 111 and Magnesia Falls Drive. The shopping center and its tenants have made significant investments and, without traffic and customers, stand to go out of business. That said, the homeowners along Magnesia Falls and the surrounding streets have also made significant investments in their properties and do not want to see these devalued by the installation of a burger joint at the end of our street. Outsiders and added traffic, irrespective of the quality of the hamburgers , will reduce the value of our homes . Based on the dialog and ensuing vote, we get the impression that our comments went on deaf ears . The decision to approve the application had apparently been made long before we had the opportunity to voice our concerns. As concluded by a minority of Planning Commission members, the key issues for homeowners are the traffic and associated crime that this increase in traffic will bring . Living directly on Magnesia Falls Drive, we are already impacted by traffic cutting through Park Lane and Joshua as a short cut to Highway 111. Despite the claim by the ln-N-Out representative , cars already cut through our neighborhood to avoid traffic lights . While the speed humps help, drivers use these streets to cut through, especially at peak traffic times. They often 1 5-411 reach high speeds on Joshua and bypass the stop signs and humps on Magnesia Falls with two wheels . Irrespective of any study or claim, the ln-N-Out will bring more and not less traffic volume to our streets . As part of the traffic mitigation, we request that the ln-N-Out development plan include a provision to terminate Magnesia Falls Drive at the shopping center entrance . This mitigation will eliminate at least incremental vehicular traffic in either direction and should be mandated as a condition of development. Included in the termination of the street, consistent with the neighboring roads, Desert, Rancho and Barbara , Magnesia Falls should also be closed to motor vehicles . The hardscape and landscape of this new area can be extended from ln-N-Out. Maintenance should remain their responsibility in perpetuity. Signage, "Not a Through Street" should be added at the corner of Park Lane and Joshua to discourage drivers seeking a short-cut.

Our home is located at 72377 Magnesia Falls Dr., in the direct path of eventual customers that will use Waze or Google to find a short cut from Park View Dr. via Joshua St. While we enjoy a hamburger as much as anyone, we cannot support a massive increase in through traffic on our now relatively quiet residential street. I support a free market, but this decision to install a very popular burger joint at the end of our street is misguided at best. The increased traffic and pedestrians wandering around the neighborhood will be intolerable . As a group, we are very concerned that our property values will suffer and eventually will to take the steps necessary to recover this cost. We would appreciate that the Planning Commission put itself in our shoes with the imposition of extra traffic and the associated bad elements this new business will attract to our quiet neighborhood. Short-term rentals are bad -this is worse. We ask that you reverse your conditional approval and find a more appropriate location for this business . Thank you for your consideration .

To be clear, it is not about In-N-Out and the benefit such a restaurant could have for the city -that is a separate debate. My primary concern is the location -and my opposition is not simply a matter of "not in my backyard." There are 128 nearby homes that will be directly affected by increased traffic both in cars and on foot as late as l :30 in the morning. People, and cars will be using Magnesia and Joshua as a short cut -they do it now and it's problematic. I noticed that you mentioned the high standard of excellence for Rancho Mirage -this also includes protecting the life style many ofus have worked very hard to attain and maintain. Respectfully, I submit you and your fellow council members have a moral responsibility to the residents that is on the verge of being compromised. I served three years on a city council in another state. I won my election largely on the basis that I pledged to protect the neighborhoods and frankly, not let uncontrolled or unwise growth compromise the quality of life as has happened in many areas of Southern California. I ran unopposed for my second term before moving back to California . Prior to that, I was on our Planning Committee. I would be more than happy to meet you at the proposed site and show you exactly what our concerns are -the closest home is literally 153 feet away. l encourage you to vote against approving the project.

I live on Magnesia Falls Drive so I am totally aware of the problems we already face. I understand people will be directed out of the mall via Magnesia Falls Drive. People exiting the mall believe they have the right of way and never even look to see if there is oncoming traffic from Magnesia, they cut you off to get in the left lane to go East on Hwy. 111. They also ignore the no left hand turn lane and, of course, come hood to hood with a vehicle entering the mall. This is just one of the minute problems that will arise from this proposal. Homeowners on Magnesia Falls, White Sun Estates, Joshua, Rancho, Barbara and other streets in this immediate area will be massively affected. Getting out of their driveway will be one of them. Many have to back out of their driveway onto Joshua and Magnesia, this will be essentially impossible with added burger traffic. There will be numerous accidents. It has been stated by a council member that the Bob Hope/Highway 111 junction is one of the busiest in the valley, you have the traffic coming off hwy 10, out of the River Mall, and the local neighborhoods. Yet you propose to add hundreds of cars a day, if not thousands. I understand the traffic study was done by In N Out in July/ August, two of the least populated months of the year. A traffic study done in January should be required and completed by the city to accurately assess this location. I listened to a woman who stood up at the City Council meeting of Sept. 13 and stated she had used her life savings for her business and I sympathize for her, but over 300 homeowners have also put their savings into their homes which will be devalued when the roadways are redesignated high density from the current low density and their property values plummet. We all want the Mall to succeed, a dead mall only brings vagrants, rats etc. However, the object of a Planning Commission is to decide which vendors best suit the given area and neighborhood. In N Out says it is a family owned business that is community driven. There is NO community consideration in the selection of this location. The Applebee corner is a block West,, a perfect location. I actually feel like I am living a bad dream, I wake up at night thinking about the implications on my life, how they have been devastatingly altered by a few people, who I cannot believe, are voting in the people's interest. The city can get it's tax revenue no matter where the location for Inn Out is. This 5-415 mall needs a grocery store more than any other business, it would maintain the integrity of this community. When I moved to this area 18 years ago I thought it very inconvenient to exit the mall and have to take a right, cross highway 111, make a U Turn, cross back over 111 to go home on Magnesia. When I inquired as to why there could not be a 4Way Stop at this exit from the mall I was told, "The speed bumps and "right turn only" were to protect the integrity of the neighborhood." What happened to this "integrity?" I also believe that the 26 cars that In N Out state will be in line for a burger will back up past the entrance from 111, cut off the flow into CVS, and be a constant source of tempers and frustration. From what I have read, there are many more than 26 cars in line at any one time. This situation will lead to individuals at odds with one another, anger which never results in pleasantries, and auto accidents exiting via Magnesia Falls. I am asking you to PLEASE reconsider another location for a fast food chain that will be so terribly invasive on our quality of life, our values to our homes, and our frustration with a constant flow of hundreds of cars a day taking a short cut from Park View, via Joshua, up Magnesia Falls, to get to the mall for a burger.

And that fact itself, that there is a magic here, is notable . Because the desert is too big to have a small town charm but also too small to offer the sort-of stirring thrills of a big city. So the desert lives in a sort-of in between . And when thinking of other Southern California places that are not small town or big city, I think of all those places between here and Los Angeles : Beaumont, Redlands, Rancho Cucamonga, etc. And yet the desert has not been handed the same fate as those cities. Those indistinguishable places with nothing to offer but fast food . Yes for so long the desert has asserted itself as something very different. There is an essence here which is sacred . There is an essence here which I love like one loves a family member. The magic here is not just in the mountains and the sky, you can feel it in the summer air, you can feel it in businesses like Natures Cafe, Mollers Gardening Center and Sub King . They all seem to contain the spirit of this place. And so in recent years when dri ving on Highway 111 in Palm Desert and seeing the new flood of chain restaurants, I am brought to an almost mourning state, as if seeing a loved one mutilated. We seem to be moving one step closer, with every chain restaurant, or, to be more specific : with every place that is not of or relating to the desert, to being just another one of those "on the way to la" places . And I can't help relating this current situation to something like seeing a loved one being forced to get cosmetic plastic surgery . Forced to replace a part of themselves, with a part foreign. One step further from their essence, from what makes them beautiful and unique. It doesn't seem to be a coincidence that in big cities you can't see the stars. And while the situation here may not be as extreme as building a skyscraper, the effect is the same . The effect being: suppression of character, suppression of beauty. And so being against the Inn Out being built is not a matter of rejecting change, it's a matter of defending the desert spirit. 1 5-417 I admit that you could call all of this just "a matter of taste". And with that, one may turn to those more concrete arguments against this In n out being built, like the increase of speeding, pollution and crime. But I believe those are all secondary concerns . The fact is, most of us are living here because of taste. And if we continue to allow uninspired foreign elements to compromise our desert, it will forever lose it's true character, that unspeakable beauty, that thing that makes it, for a lot of us, our favorite place on earth . I hope that this is taken into consideration .

We are already annoyed at the the traffic noise behind our property on Park View dr. Cars fly up and down at high speed disregarding the speed limit. We recently listed our house due to the noise but had little interest due to the road noise which was the only complaint. The thought of having probably the most popular fast food restaurant close will only make this problem worse. Regardless of what happens with the ln -N-Out the speed limit needs to be lowered and speed bumps installed to cut down on the noise on Park View . 1 5-419 Thank you fo r your consideration since this is a major problem .

My address is 72089 Magnesia Falls Drive, Rancho Mirage, CA. My parents lived in Rancho Mirage on Desert Drive and that is where I grew up. This is why I chose to purchase my current home on Magnesia Falls, because I loved living in Rancho Mirage. I am now the homeowner who will be the most negatively impacted by the proposed In and Out Burger location. 5-421 My family home is located 140 feet from the proposed site. I find myself at a complete loss of what to do in this situation, however, I must trust the good people of the RM City Council to know that I am devastated at the proposed location so close to my home and that you will help. I am requesting/inviting each one of you to visit my home in person and stand in my entry way and look over and acknowledge the closeness of the proposed site to my home BEFORE the meeting scheduled for October 3rd. Would you personally consider and feel comfortable yourselves living this close to a fast food drive thru restaurant? I invite you to come inside my home as well to understand what I have built for my children to grow up in. The backyard was designed for privacy with lots of room for outdoor activities which we enjoy with friends and family. I just cannot accept the impending nonstop daytime and nighttime traffic up until 1:30 am past my house which includes my children's bedrooms that are located on the front of our home, the car headlights beaming into their windows, the glowing neon signs, the exhaust fumes, the smell of grease and onions, the shouted out food orders over car engines snaking their way through the drive thru, and the delivery trucks scheduled after 2 am. I think you understand how upset I am. I will lose financially and I will lose the quiet enjoyment of my own home. That's just not fair. I ask that you will seriously consider choosing another location in Rancho Mirage for the new In and Out Burger establishment that everyone including myself can support.

Fast food in residential communities has been proven in all accurate data to destroy the neighborhood; much more traffic, pollution, crime, noise, transients and surrounding property values will surely go down. The proposed in and out is literally 150 feet from someone's house! It has no place in a neighborhood, especially one like ours that is one of the last relatively quiet, safe non-gated communities in all of Rancho Mirage. Our street is a fairly quiet one. Perhaps 150 cars a day? Probably less. With an in and out at the end of our street, you would literally change the entire dynamic of the neighborhood and for the worse. We would get 1000 cars but likely, much more every day. I can barely walk my dogs now without people sometimes speeding by me. I pick up litter on the road. Each year it gets worse. With a fast food place right up the street, the quiet enjoyment of our neighborhood will be obliterated overnight. As I write this, you supposedly cannot make a left turn unto magnesia falls from magnesia falls plaza, but people do it all the time. They go down a one way street, the wrong way, and make an illegal and very dangerous left turn unto magnesia falls from that shopping center. It is very unsafe . People already go over 50 miles an hour, on Joshua road because there are no speed bumps. People rarely stop at the stop signs at the end of magnesia falls and Joshua road. This is a quiet, relatively high end, totally residential area. It must be protected and this cut through traffic has to to mitigated not increased exponentially. The talk of allowing a fast food restaurant to be built literally right in our front yard seems very irresponsible. The money in and out brings will go right to their corporate headquarters and not stay in our community. Please do not let in and out build so close to a thriving and established residential area. There are plenty of other locations throughout the city that could make more sense. At the council meeting last week there was almost all opposition but I have to say the few people that were for it didn't even live in Rancho mirage. One sounded like a paid corporate plant with an agenda who talked about the history of the fast food chain instead of its impact on our community. It was so suspicious. One man compared in and out to Mimi's, Applebee's or chili's. That is so ridiculous and misguided. Those are all sit down restaurants with waiters, that close at a reasonable hour and were off a major street not a neighborhood side street. They also have no drive through. In and out is no different than a Mc Donald's or a Burger King. It is fast food. The data presented at the meeting was questionable at best, especially the information supplied to your team directly by in and out. They are grossly under estimating the 2 5-424 traffic. Makes you think, what else are they grossly under estimating or manipulating? All you have to do is google "in and out traffic" and see for yourself. Much of what in and out provided at the meeting was presented for their benefit and to minimize scrutiny or additional studies, surveys or reports . Please don't let this go any further. It would destroy our neighborhood. Our politicians, planning commission and city council members need to think how they would feel if they could see an in and out w a drive through open till lam w/ workers in there past 1:30am from their living room window. With all those people driving up and down their once safe and quiet street all day and into the wee hours of the night? How would you feel if your once cozy neighborhood was handed that kind of blow? A fast food place right at the end of your little side street that is already getting too crowded especially in season. I have owned a second home in the desert for over 15 years. My dad lives here. My mom died here. I love Rancho Mirage. Please don't take that feeling away from me . Thank you for your time.

It has come to the attention of mysel f and a handful of the property owners living on Magnesia Falls and Joshua Road that the Planning Commission will be considering a Conditional Use Permit application for a proposed late-night, drive-thru restaurant (In-N-Out Burger) on the comer of Magnesia Falls Drive and Highway 111. My neighbors and I are extremely concerned about the traffic and noise that will be generated by the project. We all like ln-N-Out burgers but lets be honest, this is not a good project for this site. It has always been a sit down restaurant, and we believe the site is just too small and too close to residential uses to be compatible with the immediate neighborhood. We would like the Commission and City Council to be aware of the growing public outcry and to, at the very least, continue the item to a date uncertain, to require that the applicant prepare a traffic study conducted in season, prepare a noise study, and to advise staff to expand their notification to include all property owners on lower Magnesia Falls and Joshua Road . The property owners would also like me to express that exempting the project under Section 15332 (i n-fill projects) of the California Environmental Quality Act guidelines is in appropriate due to the fact that the project WILL have an impact on Noise & Traffic (see Section 15332(d)). To prove my point -they say a picture is worth a thousand words. That being said, take a look at the (link) photographs showing how In-N-Outs can impact their surroundings (or Google Inn Out traffic pictures, for yourself). Please look at the aerial images showing the stacking of cars/traffic. This is not a "less than significant" impact nor will being open until I A.M. adjacent to the quiet residential street. There are also recent stories I have read on the crime and trash generated. Please keep our City a worl d-class city and site projects like this in more appropriate locations.

' .;;,;, fH:GEl VEO October 25 th; 2017 ,.:;n Y OF P J\LM SPR lNC:. 2117 OCT 26 AH IQ: 01 To the Mayor and City Council Members of Palm Springs, CA Re: Proposed ln-N-Out Burger GFFiCE Of THE CITY CLU J , Agenda item November 1 st, 2017 I strongly oppose the proposed In-N-Out Burger at the corner of Palm Canyon and Sunrise. I actually love their product and will travel far to find one of'their outlets but this is not the place for them. The Historic Site Preservation Board has appropriately addressed the architectural issue but I have several additional concerns. First of all the In-N-Out Burger outlets tend to be a little garish partially due to the red neon treatment around the top as.well as their signage. It will definitely negatively affect the character of the attractive Western style Smoke Tree center. It will also hurt the town's image, which at one time forbade any type of drive-through restaurants. Secondly, there are major traffic and parking issues. Being quite familiar with several In-N-Out Burger outlets their popularity generates major traffic and parking problems. The inter section of Palm Canyon and Sunrise would definitely have difficulty absorbing the additional traffic. It is already strained to the max, as is the parking lot. -u::> In Sherman Oaks the traffic on the Moorpark location often is literally around the block obstructing through traffic. And at the studio City location on Ventura Boulevard the cars are often tandem parked in the parking lot. I would be happy to supply pictures. This is definitely not the location for an In-N-Out Burger Drive through restaurant.
