California lawmakers moved to secure funding for Glendale’s proposed Armenian American Museum, which is slated for the corner of Colorado Street and Brand Boulevard.

If Governor Jerry Brown approves the state’s 2017-2018 budget of $183 billion this week, the museum will receive a cash boost of $3 million. The governor already approved a $1 million request for funding for construction of the project last year.

The museum’s mission is to promote the understanding and appreciation of the Armenian American experience, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.

Glendale city officials said a master plan for the proposed 30,000-square-foot museum is still underway. The City Council is expected to hear public comment on it this summer and vote on its future this fall.

Glendale-based architecture firm Alajajian Marcoosi Architects is designing the museum.

The two-story structure is expected to house a library, research facilities, exhibition space and a coffee shop, according to the Los Angeles Times. [PSN] Subrina Hudson
