English translation:community newsletter
Explanation:
I would suggest "community newsletter". While the "official" translation for Bürgerbrief is indeed act of naturalization or certificate of citizenship (Romain), the language has clearly evolved, and the term Bürgerbrief is also used for a newsletter, published by the town/city government or, for instance, by the a congressional representative (see the German references below).
On that basis, community newsletter seems like a good translation. See also the following references:

Liebe Mitbürgerinnen, liebe Mitbürger,
Immer wieder wird behauptet, die SPD und die Bundesregierung tun nichts, um wirklich Entlastung für die Menschen zu bringen. Ein Vorwurf, der weit verbreitet ist, aber nicht stimmt. Was für Verbesserungen wir tatsächlich schon erreicht haben, spätestens aber ab dem 1. Januar 2000 erreichen werden, möchte ich Ihnen mit diesem Bürgerbrief verdeutlichen:

Certificate of Citizenship


Explanation:
-brief is an old word for Urkunde, as in

Meisterbrief
Kaufmannsgehilfenbrief (I've got one)

I cannot find it in any book, you will have to take my word for it.

Hope, you will.

Community newsletter


Explanation:
I agree with this suggestion.

Escapelao, however, is totally off, I'm afraid. He/she quotes a website showing "Ottawa Citizen Letter ..." The Ottawa Citizen is one of our newspapers here in Canada, and has nothing to do with this term. Be more careful when gleaning all kinds of stuff from the Internet!
