Aspenize
 v.— «The planning industry has a term for it: “Aspenizing.” “You’re getting so affluent you can’t live there,” Carpenter said. “Nobody can live there.” Restrictive zoning in the celebrity-laden resort town of Aspen, Colo. priced out its work force. So, workers live in outlying communities and commute, some up to 100 miles a day.» —“Future building hinges on council action” by Felicia Megdal Payson Roundup (Arizona) July 25, 2006.
