    This ballot addresses a concern raised in a negative submitted on Ballot D08(18-05), Item 3. The negative voter graciously withdrew to permit that ballot to move forward based on an agreement to attempt to correct a comment related to use of terrain multipliers. Currently, the standard indicates terrain multipliers are to be used only in situations in which the building is located on a steep hill or escarpment over 18.3 m [60 ft] in height. ASCE 7-16 provides different direction. This ballot item directs the user to ASCE 7-16 for guidance on this matter. Section X1.4.1.2(3)
