The Crystal Lake City Council will vote Tuesday on a $14 million economic incentive agreement that could transform the mostly empty Crystal Court shopping center into a residential and commercial area. The proposed site, called Water's Edge, would have apartments, townhomes, restaurants, retail stores, an outdoor public area and possibly a hotel. Crystal Court, located on Northwest Highway adjacent to Three Oaks Recreation Area, has been nearly empty for more than a decade, its decline beginning when Walmart relocated in 2007, city officials have said.
