"A busy street with unsavory elements..."

I lived on this street for three years until my daughter got to the point where we needed to flee to get a quiet street with a greater sense of community.

We bought one of the newer spiffy townhouses on the very heavily trafficked Sunnyoaks and LOVED the place. Very modern, very spacious. In a word: beautiful. And we knew what we were getting... A wonderful space that was all about indoor living. It's the outside that sucks.

The street itself is an major access road to the back neighborhoods with cars going by at about 10 a minute on a Saturday (leaving soot and dust all over the homes on the actual street). A 7-Eleven right down the street generates a TON of unwelcome foot traffic from the crappy apartments a few blocks away and copious amounts of litter on the street. We used to have people buying food at 7-Eleven and then they would have their little lunch ON OUR FRONT STAIRS. We even had to push past them sometimes to get in (keep in mind, this is a condo with a private entrance, not an apt building!). I pushed past a guy one day and before I got in the house he wrapped up his garbage, and tossed it in my bushes right in front of me! I hadn't said a word or even made eye contact, so WTF? And yes, there is the one or two homeless folks around, one of whom decided to sleep in our little side yard one night and DEFECATED there before leaving. Awesome.

My final gripe is about the 1,000's of Harley owners in the back neighborhoods that use Sunnyoaks as their main access road. Our place had triple-paned windows and these bastards would wake up our baby every 20 minutes or so flying by at night. Guys, no one thinks you're cool on your bike when you make little girls wake up crying.

Let me finish by saying Campbell is overall a very nice town. Downtown is cute and continues to develop nicely (and has the best farmer's market in the south bay). The government is reasonably responsible (though their building and planning seems a bit fast and loose with monster homes being built in odd places on tiny lots). The schools seem to be hit or miss, but you can request specific elementary schools for your kids. There are also MANY nice quiet neighborhoods. However, Sunnyoaks is not one of them.
