Brooks


BY ROSE SANCHEZ — rsanchez@prairiepost.com


Officials with the City of


Brooks continue to make strides to ensure the community has a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere. Earlier this fall, the City’s


website was updated to include a language translator toolbar. Viewers can choose to view the website in more than 50 languages and so far it has proven to be popular. “We wanted to have as


many languages as possible to cater to a wider range of people,” says Jeff Gerestein, the City’s inclusion co-ordinator. He has heard from officials who work with people who are from other countries and new to Brooks that they appreciate the translator feature on the website. More of the challenge for the City may be in informing residents of the translator’s existence. Adding the new feature to the website is just one component of the City’s welcoming and inclusive community goals. The City is developing a three-year


diversity plan. Part of that is a diversity assessment of internal city services with staff asking them how they feel about the programs and roles of the city when it comes to being welcoming and inclusive. There will also be an external survey with community members. The next orientation for the community takes place Nov. 7. It’s a chance to discuss ideas for how the community and City can partner to find ways to make the community more inclusive, says Gerestein. In 2010, the City created a brief


outline of a diversity plan, but now officials are working on a more in- depth document which will govern the steps to creating a more inclusive and welcoming community until 2013. Gerestein is hopeful the diversity plan can be presented to council early in 2012. There have already been some other initiatives to come out of the diversity plan including the Welcome Package initiative and business recognition. Officials hope initiatives that are created as part of the welcoming and inclusive work will be implemented in the community for years to come. “We look forward to creating other


events and working with other service providers,” says Gerestein, who is working to create a link between newcomer service providers in Brooks and the City. He’s appreciative of council’s support


of the work being done to create a more inclusive and welcoming community. “It’s great to have the Mayor’s and council’s leadership and support to have this program running,” he adds.
