"It is going according to plan," he said. The spot, designed to be a hang- out for visitors, will be located in the former Living Well Adult Day Care space, to the left side of the complex when entering the large parking area off Main Street, across from the senior center. It will seat up to 200 people, but Duffy said he doesn't expect to come close to that capacity.
