Dont just focus on coming up with a weighted score. Consider problems with the way you come up with it. For example, some variables have values that are a lot bigger than values of other variables. Would it make sense to simply add their values if we wanted both variables to count equally in the ratings?Come to class with 9 copies of your suggestion for how to weight cities' scores on each variable. Be prepared to discuss it, perhaps revise it, or perhaps combine it with other sugestions.
