I personally like the idea of the nice middle-class town where once you scratch the varnish you start seeing the cracks and that not is all at it seems and not to trust a book by its cover (so to speak). After that I think it’s a question of describing the environment through the eyes and the emotions of the POVs. For example how would they describe the local market if they are feeling depressed and isolated or what kind of details would they pick up if they were feeling hopeful.

I hope that makes sense and it helps.
