(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) of this section, the owner of the property being sold for taxes may request in writing, not less than 24 hours prior to the tax sale, that a portion of the property be sold. Such request must clearly identify the portion of the property to be sold, and must be accompanied by a certification from the District Environmental Commission and the town zoning administrative officer that the portion identified may be subdivided and meets minimum lot size requirements.
