I would suggest calling the city if it's incorporated, but also checking the tax rolls to find out who owns it because the city is going to want you to identify the property. If it's not incorporated into the city, it will be a part of the County's Plan and then you'd call the county. Check out the City or County website and you should find websites for the Planning Departments. Municode.com will give you the definition and regulations for the zoning codes, like RM-8, GC, etc., for a lot of the cities and counties in the nation.
